      Title: Mary at the Farm and Book of Recipes Compile d during Her Visit among the "Pennsylvania Germans" Author: Edith M. Thomas Release Date: Septem [eBook #] Language: English Character set encoding: ISO ***START OF THE PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK MARY AT THE FARM AND BOOK OF RECIPES COMPILED Author: Edith Thomas. Jacob Grimm, the brilliant linguist and folklorist, is one of many scholars who took Bede at his word, and in his book Deutsche Mythologie, he proposed that Eostre must have been a local version of a more widespread Germanic goddess, whom he named Ostara. It’s impossible to tell if Ostara as a goddess ever existed outside Grimm’s proposal.

        Above: In , David Lick and Thomas Brendle authored a landmark study titled Plant Names and Plant Lore among the Pennsyvlania Germans. That purple text, above, is from that book. I printed it here with a font named Neue Luthersche Fraktur (New Luther Fraktur.). Biblical account. Traditional nativity scenes depict three "Wise Men" visiting the infant Jesus on the night of his birth, in a manger accompanied by the shepherds and angels, but this should be understood as an artistic convention allowing the two separate scenes of the Adoration of the Shepherds on the birth night and the later Adoration of the Magi to be combined for convenience.

        Finally, we attribute the rapid progress and popularity of folklore study in America and in Europe to three reasons: (1) Folk lore is a study to which almost every one can contribute something; (3) folk lore is a study which throws a flood of light on man's past mental evolution and culture-history, as the Germans call the study; (3) folk lore.

Jacob Hiltzheimer heard the alarm while visiting a neighbor on the evening of Decem About eight o’clock, the wife of Quaker merchant Henry Drinker was sitting in her back parlor when she heard “the noise of a Fire Engine, and the ringing of Bells.”.

Old English Ēostre continues into modern English as Easter and derives from Proto-Germanic *Austrǭ, itself a descendant of the Proto-Indo-European root * h₂ews- meaning 'to shine' (modern English east also derives from this root).

The goddess name Ēostre is therefore linguistically cognate with numerous other dawn goddesses attested among Indo-European.
