Online class covering mythology, folklore, and belief surrounding the goddess Badb and the evolution of the Bean Sidhe.
This class explores the mythology and cult of Badb and her association with foretelling and proclaiming deaths, as well as her ties to the later Bean Sidhe and the ways that the Bean Sidhe developed from a simple 'fairy woman' into an omen of death. We also cover folklore around the Bean Sidhe, under her various names, and discuss possible sources for these beings ranging from deities to human spirits.
The material about the Bean Sidhe that can be found online and in many
books is often confusing or oversimplified, but if you have ever wanted
to get to the core of who and what these enigmatic beings are and how
they are connected to the older mythology of Ireland this class will
guide you through to solid information. Focusing on what we know from
mythology and tracing that forward into modern folk belief we cover
everything you need to know about the Bean Sidhe in Irish belief.
