Merlin was one of the great mythological figures, also associated with those ancient people.
Merlin, according to the Celts, was reported to have made many prophecies in his mythological lifetime…
Nonsense, I hear you say…but, read on, for this is where it all gets rather tangled and interesting!
It is interesting to note here that any writing to do with prophesy is of great interest to an old institution, famous for the suppression and burning of women and especially those with healing and esoteric knowledge at around the same time as this book was published…and into the centuries that followed.
A patriarchal institution of great secrecy…
You see, there is a book in the Vatican Library, amongst many hundreds of thousands of books, that are not to be read, or studied, except under the prescriptives of the higher echelons of that closed, patriarchal institution.
This book is a copy of an original manuscript, dated 8 October 1474.
The extraordinary title of this closed document is, Merlini Prophetica.
Amazing importance given to someone who was said not to have existed, don’t you think?
