Celtic Legends: Irish Legends
Each culture has its own mythological traditions, and while everybody is familiar with the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece, it should also be noted that the Irish have a deep and ongoing tradition of mythological legends of their own. Celtic legends are kept alive to this day on the strength of the storytelling tradition, and these tales are passed along from generation to generation. The aim of this program is the search for the Celtic gods of Britain. It's highlighted by a study of the mystery surrounding Finn Mac Cummaill, the mighty warrior of Fianna, and other Celtic warriors. This video provides a door into these enduring mystical traditions. ~ Dan Macintosh, Rovi
Celtic Legends: The Arthurian Legends
This documentary traces the Arthurian legends from their inception in the 6th century historical figure of an British chieftain, through his metamorphosis into the romantic figure of grail legends and the round table we know today. By the 12th century, Arthur was a national hero to the English. The exploits of Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, immortalized by the French poet Chretien de Troyes, fired the imagination of other writers down through the centuries, notably in "The Idylls of the Kings", by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Richard Wagner's opera "Parsifal", and "Morte D'Arthur, by Sir Thomas Mallory. These works, and others, and the myths they embodied, are explored in the film. Considered are the essentials of the Arthurian myth, such as his relationships with Guinevere, Lancelot, and his magical teacher Merlin, and his nemesis Mordred. This is a fascinating look at one of the Europe's most enduring heroes. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
