The Flaming Door is perhaps Eleanor Merry’s best known work. The secrets of initiation slumber in the ancient legends, in which men and women found their way through the “flaming door,” the threshold between the physical and spiritual worlds.

Part one covers the time before Christ and includes studies of the Bards, the Cauldron of Ceridwen, and Hu the Mighty. Part two discusses the time since Christ, which includes the Legends of Odrum, St. Columba, and the Legends of the Rose and the Lily.

This is must reading for anyone interested in Celtic myths and Christianity.

About the Author:

Eleanor C. Merry (1873-1956) was a poet, artist, musician and anthroposophist with a strong Celtic impulse and a life-long interest in esoteric wisdom. Born in Eaton, England, she studied in Vienna and met Rudolf Steiner in 1922 after becoming interested in his teachings. She went on to organize Summer Schools at which Steiner gave important lectures, and she was secretary for the World Conference on Spiritual Science in London in 1928.

Review:

'It's great to see Floris reprinting these Anthroposophical classics ... The Flaming Door links Pagan and Christian stream of awareness ... a revelatory book for its time.' -- Inner Light Magazine, Summer 2008 'The re-issue of Eleanor C. Merry's anthroposophical work is yet another well chosen, well-produced and moderately priced effort by Floris Books to make works of alternative spirituality, both older and contemporary, available to a wider readership ... the content and the context of the book are fascinating.' -- Folklore, August 2009
