Grigory Bondarenko:

Studies in Irish Mythology

300 pages, Softback,
35,00 € plus postage
ISBN: 978-3-942002-15-8

This book – the result of about ten years research – deals mostly with the mythological substratum of narratives, composed and written down in early medieval Ireland, within the broader context of Indo-European and Eurasian mythologies.

Some chapters of this book were published previously as articles in different periodicals and proceedings of conferences.
Studies in Irish Mythology relaunches them, reworked and updated, together with hitherto unpublished chapters, as a single comprehensive book with the aim of providing a reader towards a tentative reconstruction of an early Irish mytholo­gical worldview.
