Tuatha Dé Danann

Tuatha Dé Danann | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

 

In Irish-Celtic folklore, the Tuatha Dé Danann ("People of the goddess Danu") are the Irish race of gods, founded by the goddess Danu.

 

These gods, who originally lived on 'the islands in the west', had perfected the use of magic.

 

They traveled on a big cloud to the land that later would be called Ireland and settled there.

 

Shortly after their arrival they defeated the Firbolg at the first battle of Mag Tuireadh.

 

In the second battle of Mag Tuireadh they fought and conquered the Fomorians, a race of giants who were the primordial inhabitants of Ireland.

 

The Tuatha Dé dealt more subtly with the Fomorians than with the Firbolg, and gave them the province of Connacht. There was also some marrying between the two races.

 

The Tuatha Dé themselves were later driven to the underworld by the Milesians, the people of the fabulous spanish king Milesius.

 

There they still live as invisible beings and are known as the Aes sidhe. In a just battle, they will fight beside mortals.

 

When they fight, they go armed with lances of blue flame and shields of pure white...

On the margin: Mandrakes | They were here and might return | Scoop.it

Mandrake was, of course, far from being the only plant with an anthropomorphic root.

 

Mandrake's use as a surgical anaesthetic was first described by the Greek physician Dioscorides around AD 60, and its use as a tincture known as mandragora, or in combination with other herbs such as opium, hemlock and henbane is described in documents from pre-Roman times onwards4.

 

It was the presence of this alkaloid, as well as the shape of the root, that led to the mandrake's association with magic, witchcraft and the supernatural.
