The Taliesin mythology is one of Britain’s oldest surviving traditions. With its roots in the Celtic Iron Age it continues to flourish to this day as a central part of Welsh language culture, modern Druidry and Paganism. The main sources for this tradition include some of the oldest and most intriguing poems in the Welsh bardic tradition, as well as some of the better known folk stories of Wales. By examining these sources in detail, this course explores what is essentially the oldest surviving myth concerning a native British priesthood.
The Taliesin Tradition is a 7 week course that begins Sunday, 2nd of October, 2022 and runs every Sunday at the same time, 7:45pm (GMT), 2:45pm (EDT) and 11:45pm (PDT), and the time changes when Daylight Saving Time ends in the US on 6th November.
Every week there are pre-recorded video lectures to watch and sometimes a little reading to do before you attend the Sunday Zoom call. The minimum time commitment (including the 45 minute call) is around 1.5 hrs per week.
