Overview

With new illustrations added!

This is one of the most sought after and enigmatic texts about Celtic fairies. Written by a Scottish clergyman, Robert Kirk, in 1691, and not committed to print until the early 19th century, The Secret Commonwealth is an unusually sympathetic account of the denizens of fairyland, and a complex of still mysterious extrasensory phenomena including poltergeists, clairvoyance and doppelgangers (here called 'co-walkers'). ----John Bruno Hare

Includes original illustrations by Anne N'Toko in the appendix.

Many believe in fairies and elves as beings who live unseen among us. There are those who teach that these beings are the same as the Djinn, who live unseen among us in various forms but are of the same race. These magical beings are thought to have a form of government or heirarchy and have many of the same religious beliefs as humans and often interact with humans. They have a sense of right and wrong and although not immortal, they can live for thousands of years. We can learn more about ouselves, our world, and our ultimate fate by learning of and from the Fairies.
