Description

A Journey to the Immortal Isles, Immram Brain maic Febail – the Voyage of Bran, Son of Febal – possibly written in the eighth century and not later than the ninth, tells the story of Bran’s adventure to the Otherworld. It is a beautiful half- pagan and half-Christian tale, which still has resonance today in the works of such authors as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. Dr Adamson, already known for his books Thee Cruthin, Bangor, Light of the World and Dalaradia, Kingdom of the Cruthin, traces the origins of the tale to the Pretanic, Brittonic and finally Gaelic traditions of Bangor, County Down and demonstrates its universal theme in the search for Paradise.
