Gaelic Incantation: Invited Paper

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

    Abstract

    Gaelic chant or incantation and it's importance historically, and indeed today, for our concepts of ceremony around death and dying.
    Ritual and ceremony have surrounded death and dying since our earliest ancestors walked the earth. The sense of mystery, the loss, the meaning making and the imaginative response are fundamental parts of our nature and are exercised in different manifestations – largely dependent on local culture and practice.
