A great little book about pagan bear deities is due to be published later this month. It is calledPagan Portals: Artio and Artaios – A Journey Towards the Celtic Bear Gods. Author Andrew Anderson looks at archaeology, folklore and records of spiritual practice as well as his own personal findings to create a picture of who Artio and Artaois were and how they can be honoured today. I read a copy before it went to press and wrote this endorsement for it:
“Pagan Portals: Artio and Artaios is a superb exploration of bears in myth, legend and the natural world. It looks at ancient traditions and representations of bears in the modern world, including films, fiction and art. It is full of wonderful tales, inspiring interviews, and oodles of information. There’s information about bear festivals, and insights into the wider cultural significance of bears, such as the gay bear scene. The final chapter suggests practical ways to honour the goddess Artio and the god Artaios, including bear feasts. This is a book to curl up and enjoy in winter hibernation, as well as to learn from throughout the Bear Wheel of the Year.”
