The Pagan Reference Library was the result of recurrent questions asked in Pagan chat rooms, and at the time, a dearth of reliable books.

Hermotimus and I went back and pulled 'old masters', texts from those authors working during the Celtic Revival. While these authors did  not abide by the current filtering - Not conflating your beliefs on those you're studying - the underlying information is accurate and reliable generally, It is generally their conclusions that tend to be tainted by their societal biases.

We started intending to do 20 Celtic books, but kept tripping over  interesting information that applied, not just to the Celtic path but most of the European traditions.

It is our hope  that when you can afford a new book, you will consider these ones instead.
