Aaron Meyer
A very interesting book. I feel at times that he is reaching in some of his claims concerning the Druids but it doesn't detract much from the reading. I simply made notations in the margin where I knew information was incorrect. Some of his bible verses he quotes I found somewhat elaborated on, one in particular one from Ezekiel 9:4-6 he states a tau was marked on the forehead where the bible only states a mark was made. I am curious where he gets this unless perhaps from a Jewish legend perhaps ...more
...they worshipped only the sun, the moon and the stars - and not as Gods but as visions of that Divine Essence, which alone ruled and pervaded the earth, the sky and the sea.
Men multiplied God into a thousand names, and created Him always in their own image.
The Druids deemed it impious to enclose within a house that God, whose shrine was the universe.

I found this book quite interesting.
It does not try to assert some kind of Truth, it basically works on connections and comparison

loved the way this was written and found it useful as a writing tool. skimmed the bits where he claimed that the Catholic church is basically a bunch of pagans. at this end of history it feels like a bit of a reach.
A quirky collection of folklore, rumor, assertion, and polemic about Druidism, Catholicism, Freemasonry, and ancient religion. Unreliable, but colorful and fascinating.
