The lessons in the Auracept, based on Ogham, and the manner of speech it's similarly to the hierogliphical language from Egypt.
The reader must to undestand what the examples behind grammar or poetic lessons came to meaning. It's a colection of thesaurus
of indo-european religion by the celtic people. If the reader have this comprehension, he will have the notion of the religion of
the celts and separetly the true magic systems, that so many persons think that was lost in the past.

An index of deciphrations, "in hypothesys" of the liturgy intitled "Tertia".

This is interesting, it's a pity that Beith who used to be frequent here and was a Gaelic scholar can't review this.
I've only read translations of the Auraicept_na_n-Éces but some things stand out, I've always thought the Colum Cille is St. Columba rather than Iona.
Although it could be a kenning for Iona, but wouldn't that be I collum cille?

Your post seems to be a glossary of terms rather than a description of the rituals that you've interpreted from the Scholar's Primer.
Could you expand upon your description of the ritual steps?
Most dear is fire to the sons of men,
most sweet the sight of the sun;
good is health if one can but keep it,
and to live a life without shame. (Havamal 68)

Greetings,

You may find this book of interest http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/John_Paul_Patton It deals with these topics comprehensively - and no, I've no connection to the writer (although he has popped in to DHP from time to time).

PS: I was actually chatting to Beith recently about a vaguely related matter. How cool would it be to have a modern-day handbook on Danogam skills?

Hi, well

St. Columba It's a saint trainned by the druids that were lived in the old island of Iona, for this reason the island was named in his memory. Collum Cille meaning "church's dove", his "epytet". The cenary of the rite is the megalithic sanctuary of this island, that it's no more different from other religious celtic sites. The sanctuary it's today open to visitations.

To expand about these ritual steps, I will try explain here something about. But it will be just a speculation within
the complexity of the rite. In other side would be simply to execute, however so hard. So before it's necessary a little
abstraction, that we will find in the codex "Suae Apte" a selection of words origined between latim (or latinist) and gaelic (or scholars):

Codex “Suae apte”:

Metrofia: Intellectualis (intelect) Clitps: Nobilitas (noblity)
Ut dictamtabat: Principium (principle) Mymos: Dignitas (dignity)
Sade: Iusticia (justice) Fann: Recognitio (memory)
Gno: Utilitas (utillity) Uliu: Honor (honour)
Bora: Fortitudo (power) Gavpal: Obsequium (service)
Ter: Dualitas Coniugalis (marital duality) Blaqth: Lux solis (sun light)
Rfoph: Veneratio (veneration) Merc: Pluvia (rain)
Brops: Pietas (piety) Pal: Dies et Nox (day and night)
Rihph: Hilaritas (hilarity) Gatru: Pax (peace)
Gal: Regnum (kingdom) Biun: Aqua et Ignis (water and fire))
Fkal: Religio (religiosity) Spax: Longevitas (longevity)

Introduction “Auracept”, Pg.14.


So, let me try to expand about the steps of the rite. Note that I do not put the list in alphabetical order, for the reason that the order of steps will be covered. And some other details was omitted to be a short abstract of that. The firts steps it's a journey or travel over the sea by ships (and the formation of Ogham of ships), "Navigare" is the name of this step and followed by "Buono" a blessing, and "Rogaire" thatsit's a religious petition in front of "fortiositer", a fortress or hillfort where live the king and queen (probably payments of sacrificial tributes or imposts), and in sequence the "compte", literally computation, count of (tributes/persons). at the fort and at the religious space. The Auracept explain this with "Glé Occur", general with three words to each of them.

This journey reflects the cosmovision of the Celts, the navigation by ships (Sea), the coming to the hill fort or castell (Sky) and the walking to the sanctuary (Earth). I beleave that all Ireland, in ancient times, goes to these rite like an obligation of the celt. I remember now a short textual piece by the hero "Cuchulain", that he defines his vision of the celtic religious festival as a travel over sea and lands, but now I'm not get find.
The last step of the travel the walking it's a religious procession until the temple, carrying the flags and the sacrifical blood (in an image of javali) - see "Imbhas Forosni".
The sacrificial blood was related by inumerous writers, but I'm not found references in the Auraceptc. It's the offering for the presence of the gods, and sorverenty or revival for the forest. I not include this step, that in my writers it's a footnote after the incense burning, the blood is poured on the trees...

So this way, others steps will be understood. There are to many videos that have scenes of this "steps" in the same context. But what it's really for discussion or to share between us are the hymns in quarttet (for the gods and hero) and the Tréfhocul examples (stanzas), that it's on the "Yellow Book of Lecan" that we do not find in the internet. And too the magical manners to rime in this model of poem (quatrain).
After the rite the harvest continue, with feasts and banquets (in triumph of Peace).

The Tertia schema of hours, the liturgic hours, it's the timing for these steps, begining and finishing in a specific hour according to the festival. The first schema is the third hour before the sunset/Sunrise.In the Coligny Calendar just two festival happen in the night of full moon (or in the night).
The third hour of the night (15hs) and the third hour of the day (3hs), it's the proposed hour for the properly rite. The journey or travel's hour before it's respectivelly (9hs) and (21hs) . This way rests the banquet hour respectivelly (00hs) and (12hs). (See the clock/calendar of Knowth).

Or the reverse, according to the third hour after the sunset/Sunrise.
The third hour of the night (21hs) and the third hour of the day (9hs), it's the proposed hour for the properly rite. The journey or travel's hour before it's respectivelly (15hs) and (3hs) . This way rests the banquet hour respectivelly (00hs) and (12hs). (See the clock/calendar of Knowth).

He lived in the time of the flood,
He first erected altars,
He first collected men together and formed them into petty communities,
He first gave laws and distributed justice,
He divided mankind by their families and nations over the face of the earth.

To solve the system of hours problem in Tertia liturgy I had adopted the layout of the sundial at knowth and the image sculpture of a celtic warrior
with the figure of a sextant in his shield, recently exposed on Rio de Janeiro: http://www2.uol.com.br/historiaviva/not ... neiro.html

and others interesting sextants objects thats indicates the simple scheme of hours <15hr, 18hr, 9hr>. The scheme retracts the passage of the light to the dark, and the dark to the light, the gaelic people beleave that it's the moment of high power, the trasition moments.

An old sextante object:

A sextante it's an object of navigation that let us calculate coordinates and hours of a maritimal percurse or roots in function of the position of the sun, angles, and other datas.
