Finding Merlin The Truth Behind the LegendBattles which Merlin would ultimately lose From the time of his death up until the present day historical records relating to Merlin have been altered his true provenance and importance obscured and his name changed to mean 'Madman' The same fate awaited Merlin's Merlin The Truth MOBI #238 twin sister Languoreth as intelligent and powerful as her brother but as a woman a greater threat to the power of church and state Languoreth's existence Merlin Th. I liked this book and it makes a nice story but I do have some big issues with the author My biggest one is his assumption that Rhydderch Hael must have been gay because his wife had an affair As demonstrated in Broadchurch and assorted politicians having affairs today people have affairs for all sorts of reasons My spouse is gay is infinitesimally rare I'd be likely to think she was perceived as having an affair from being in a compromising position like being alone with the alleged lover It's reminiscent of people assuming someone is autistic Is he on the spectrum when they're probably likely just woefully socially awkward Rhydderch and Languoreth married for politics not loveThis directly ties in with his random assumption that St Kentigern's father was into crossdressing so therefore that was the reason she didn't want to marry him Maybe Jocelyn didn't mention the crossdressing because it never happened Those sources that mention the episode put me in mind of Pamela the 1740 book about a maid preyed on by her master At one point he dresses up as a woman and hides in her room in order to rape her Why is it so implausible that Taneu didn't want to marry a man who was trying to rape her I posit that her desire to not marry him had nothing to do with crossdressing and everything to do with not wanting to be married Another issue I have is with his writing which at times sounds like he's analytically flailing There's a number of times he gets evidence and then makes a conclusion and sticks to it like a tick on a dog He has great sources but does not consider all the potential outcomes to which could be possibleI am not at all surprised by the Christian aggressions perpetuated and lead by St MungoKentigern It fits with history and the events portrayed within The Darkening Age The Christian Destruction of the Classical World by Catherine Nixey

Fact or fictionI had this book thrust at me after I had just read about Atlantis the the Pyramids Both interesting at times books but hard going I was reluctant to read this one I'm glad I did True or not I don't know but it's well researched and well written I learnt so much about the coming of Christianity and the Angles the Picts and the Druids While reading this book I could feel the authors passion and love of both the story and Scotland It all fits together nicely and I want to believe he is right although I am from the South of England I would rather Merlin be placed in Scotland if that's where he belongs I really enjoyed this book and am now looking to reading Arthur if and when it's written

Merlin the very The Truth MOBI #239 name evokes intriguing images magician wise man prophet adviser to Arthur counsellor of Camelot The legend is famous but not the truth that Merlin was a historical figure a Briton who hailed not from England or Wales as traditional wisdom would have it but from ScotlandAdam Ardrey brings back to life Merlin's Finding Merlin PDFEPUBrole in the cataclysmic battles between reason and religion of sixth century Britain. Let's start with the positive shall we On the plus side I thought this book was researched on a very deep level and the writer truly put forth an effort to tell what he believes to be the truth I admire the dedication that clearly went into the making of this book and the passion with which the writer tells us about this mysterious time in historyNonetheless I thought that Adam Ardrey's elaboration on Merlin's nemesis Mungo or St Kentigern came across as anti Christian and felt rather over powering While Ardrey points out in the beginning that certainly not all Christians are extremist power hungry radicals like St Kentigern and his followers I think he should have mentioned that a few times so that the reader wouldn't forget I think he should have also pointed out that the Christian faith does not teach that we should act the way these Christians supposedly didThe other thing I took issue with was how Ardrey painted Merlin and the other Druids as modern men of science and says that it was the superstitious Mungo Christians who associated sorcery with Merlin's name Ardrey sort of neglects the fact that Druids were nature worshippers and would have believed in things like prophecy and the gift of foresight Instead the image he weaves is one of the Christian faith putting an end to science and learning When in truth it was not the Christian faith but men who used the Christian faith as a route to power that brought about the Dark AgesThis book told me about things I never knew about Merlin but I'm afraid to say I'm not sure that this books tells the whole and complete story The writer often makes what seem to me to be huge extrapolations from rather small bits of evidence and often seems to forget that sixth century Britain was not uite as liberal as today However I'll let you decide for yourselves I rated this book 3 stars because I respect the work that went into it but I think it takes sides to an extreme
