ASPECTS OF CELTIC MYTHOLOGY.
Holmes Publishing Group, 2000. Myths have an essential bearing upon the execution of the earliest religious functions, that is, upon the ritual intended for the obtaining of a gift or favor from a superior power. Where a god is worshipped, the myth is there to remind him of what he has done or allowed on a previous occasion. "In Irish the verb usually rendered by 'to invoke' has the literal meaning 'to remind' or 'to call to mind'." - from the text. Hand bound with patapar cover sheet. (Item ID: 467-8)
