Fate in Early Irish Texts

By Jacqueline Borsje

Peritia, Vol.16 (2002)

Abstract: When writing about the concept of Fate in early Irish texts in 1910, Edward Gwynn made a distinction between the passive and active notion of Fate. The lexical approach to this subject, which he suggested but was unable to apply, is carried out in the present study, and it brings the predominance of the passive notion to the surface. An explanation for this predominance is offered here, which takes the problems and possibilities of the reconstruction of pre-Christian past by the Christian composers of early Irish literature into account.
