The Solar and Lunar Origins of Irish Pagan Saints

The Solar and Lunar Origins of Irish Pagan Saints

I think you may be as interested in this as am I. Here is a description from another site:
In this regard, here’s a very good lecture on Irish mythology by an Irishman named David Halpin with the YT channel of “Night Land” who is explaining the astrotheological origins of various deities reworked as Christian “saints.”
For example, the Irish Catholic “St. Brigit” is actually a pagan goddess, Brigid, whose myth evidently represents in part the vernal equinox. I’ve written about Brigid previously, as well as other such deities that were rehashed falsely as “saints.”
David discusses the “Triple Goddesses” as associated with the sun and moon. The lunar phases of waxing, full and waning moon are represented in pagan goddess mythology as the maid, mother and crone. He also discusses the number three in Pythagoreanism and other numerological aspects, including the lunar number of 19.
These various motifs and elements can be found within the Christian versions of these Irish stories, demonstrating that they are indeed myths reworking ancient Irish deities. In this regard, Halpin also examines the supposed historical accounts for these “saints,” showing that they are unreliable.
He delves into other European myths, as well as goddess symbolism and archaeological alignments. If you like Irish and European mythology, as well as astrotheology and archaeoastronomy, you’ll want to have a look!
Let's return to this subject in a while - David Halpin is taking the same aapproach as do I, though from the more-limited focus of Ireland.
