Talk : Thurs 28 of July - 7 PM
Philosophy and Mysticism in Ancient Europe – The Bardic Tradition
Through the accounts of Roman and Greek historians, together with archeological finds of spiritual and ceremonial significance, we come into contact with some very mysterious yet highly sophisticated systems of thought across ancient Europe. In Britain alone some of these finds date back to at least 13,000 BC.
What are the philosophical and mystical beliefs that were perhaps once widespread and what relevance could the ethics from those times have for us today?
Using the premise of the Bardic Tradition as a synthesis of indigenous ancient European thought, this talk will use historical and mythological accounts, alongside collected writings from Bardic philosophy, to try to enter into contact with the values and cosmovision of the ancient European world.
Tickets for this talk are £8 (£5cons) with all proceeds going to support our activities. Purchase in advance is recommended.
