Does anyone know of any books about the symbolism of Celtic Knotwork - if indeed it is Celtic in origin and not Anglo-Saxon as I have seen suggested? I'm very interested in learning the meaning behind the symbols found in manuscripts such as the Book of Kells; mainly because the knots found therein have become a very popular theme in modern Celtic jewellery. I have read that the endless knot is pre-Christian and is symbolic of eternity (somehow tied in with pagan Celtic beliefs in reincarnation), but I wondering if this is in fact the case. Anyone know anything?
