St. Brigid of Ireland
I've written and taught before on the syncretism between paganism and Christianity in Ireland. I've spoken about how much we owe the modern pagan worship of the deity to the teachings around the saint. This is the first time I've taught specifically on the saint though.
And yes, I feel like understanding the saint, her life, the circumstances and society she grew up in, can all help us in our spiritual path with Brigid. It's so easy to skim the surface of this saint, but come with me as we do a deep dive into her hagiographies and the political and social context of her life and times. 5th century Ireland was no easy walk for a woman, particularly a woman who stood out!
