The Morrígan: History & Modern Cultus Resources

This page was first published on my polytheist Tumblr blog, Bean Chaointe, but due to some technical issues I decided it was better to host this here.

Disclaimer: This is not meant to present itself as the end-all, be-all of resources concerning the Morrígan.  The information here is information that I have found useful, but I absolutely do not claim any authority.  YMMV.

This page is a work of love, devotion, and practicality.  It’s for the Morrígan, as herself and themselves, and for any of us who have tasted her names in the blood on our lips, and it’s a never-ending work in progress.

Table of Contents

  • Introductions & History
  • Her Cult
  • Contemporary Reflections on the Morrígan, Sovereignty, War, & Death
