About My Library

_Inclusion of books doesn’t always mean recommendation._

I would like to build here a virtual library of books of use to Brigit scholars, devotees, enthusiasts, etc.

When asked for recommendations of books about Brigit the first two I cite are:

Pagan Portals - Brigid: meeting the Celtic Goddess of Poetry, Forge, and Healing Well by Morgan Daimler and


The Rites of Brigid: Goddess & Saint by Sean O Duinn, although there are many other excellent books.

If you have recommendations of books please let me know.

Thus far the books in my virtual library are mostly in my bricks and mortar library. As time goes on I will be adding more books I would love to have, but don't yet have access to.

About my tags: When I tag a book "Brigit" this doesn't mean that the book is all about Brigit, but simply that there is material about her in the book. I haven't been consistent with this tag, so there are books with references to her that haven't been tagged as such, but ah, well. This is life.

About Me

I am the author of A Brigit of Ireland Devotional—Sun Among Stars (2021), and founder of the Daughters of the Flame, with whom I do a regular shift tending the perpetual flame of Brigit. The order was created in late 1992 in order to address the need for a perpetual Brigit's flame. We lit our first flame on Imbolc 1993.


A number of years later I learned that the Irish Brigidine sisters of Solas Bhride relit the perpetual flame in Kildare, Ireland, on the same day--Imbolc 1993. This has always seemed a blessing to me.

Flame-tending groups continue to arise, in many forms and guises, giving people around the world the opportunity to actively participate in Brigit's service.

I maintain Brigit's Sparkling Flame, a blog which features links, books, music, etc. related to Brigit as goddess or saint. If you have any links or materials you can suggest to feature on the blog, or are interested in joining the Daughters of the Flame, please drop me a note.

I also maintain a Brigit poetry blog, Stone on the Belly, and teach a number of Brigit classes at the Mystery School of the Goddess.
