Brigid – Goddess, Druid, and Saint of Imbolc

Thank you for listening to this episode!

Here you’ll find our notes, links to research and some personal highlights from your hosts. 

Welcome | fáilte 

In this episode we hear about two  Brigids;  One is a goddess, the other, a saint, but there is a lot of crossover in their stories. .   We ask:

  • What is the connection between the two Brigids?
  • What did the goddess Brigid represent?
  • What magical acts did St. Brigid carry out?
  • What folklore and tradition is associated with Imbolc and St. Brigid’s Day?
  • What does the word Imbolc mean?

Brigid returns from tending her flock to see women huddled around the hearth with only a bit of bread between them. A bit of divine magic might be just what the doctor ordered.
