Celtic history and religion
This is a chapter of The mists of Avalon more than a dream!
||deutsch ........... english
"The mists of Avalon" describes the struggle between the old Celtic religion of the people in Brittanie of the time of Jesus birth and the new Christian beliefs that came with the Roman conquerers. The Christian missionaries tried over the centuries with growing intolerance and fanatism to accuse the old religion as heathen and inspired by the devil and exterminate the people that clung to their beliefs.
Who were the Celts? Where did they come from? What sort of culture and religion did they have? Who were the druids? What has survived into modern times of the traditions, convictions and feelings of those days?

Won't you write something into my guestbook before you leave?
Sorry to say that 'Silverhair', who gave away these beautiful grafics as 'Linkware' in 1998, seems to have vanished from the web.
I eliminated the broken link since I couldn't find her in the search engines any more.
