I Celti consideravano l’isola di Avalon – identificabile con l’attuale Glastonbury – il punto di passaggio dell’Asse del Mondo. Il Tor di Glastonbury rappresenta l’archetipo della montagna sacra e spiri- tuale, e funge da scala per il cielo. Le sorgenti costituiscono il mezzo per accedere al magico regno degli spiriti del sottosuolo, e per uscir- ne. La Chalice Well e la c ...more

Shelves: non-fic, paranormal
The mystical Isle of Avalon, where the Lady of the Lake guards Excalibur and the evil Melwas keeps Guinevere a prisoner underneath the Tor; Nicholas Mann, historian and author, explores its legendary mysteries by examining the physical features of place in the context of its mythology, history, and religious significance. Mann is obviously enthralled with Glastonbury, and while he does a through and creditable job relating the factual evidence, he is also prone to conjecture. Goddesses and druid ...more

Recommends it for: Celtic pagans and mystics
A bunch of geomantic nonsense. Mann charts the mythology and spiritual nature of Glastonbury, traditionally the site of Avalon in Arthurian legend. His writing style is convoluted, and his research methods are beyond sketchy; Mann frequently leans heavily on previous research that has generally been dismissed as unreliable by scholars in the field. I would only recommend this to dabblers in mysticism, pseudo-science, and geographical geometry (yeah, my eyes glazed over too!). This is definitely ...more

Chiunque voglia scoprire i misteri di Avalon deve passare dalla cittadina di Glastonbury e risolvere i tanti misteri che la avvolgono.
Come mai il Tor è adagiato su un labirinto?
Come mai la Fonte Rossa e quella Bianca sono proprio in quella posizione e formano quel particolare segno a livello geologico?
Come mai il Chalice Well è da secoli meta di peregrinaggio e sacralità?

Questo luogo ha davvero visto la presenza di Giuseppe d'

The digital edition of this book contains descriptions of images which are present in the paper edition of the book but not the images themselves. It is, therefore, incomplete and poorly formatted. Because I do digital formatting of books, and because I know there are many reputable digital formatters, I look at this sort of deliberate or accidental oversight as amateurish. It put me off the book entirely, and I did not bother to read past the second missing image.
