Bardic Press

Bardic Press is a publisher of books on early Christianity, Sufi poetry, Gnosticism, the Fourth Way, and Celtic and other mythology, Irish interest, Songs of Joy and Sorrow by A.M. Ashford and others.

Some of their books and texts on early Christianity cover the roots of Christianity in the first and second centuries. The discovery of the Nag Hammadi texts, and the Gospel of Thomas in particular, has opened up the world of early Christianity and Gnosticism. They also publish The Gnostic, A Journal of Gnosticism, Western Esotericism and Spirituality.

The Fourth Way teaching was introduced to Europe and America by Gurdjieff in the early twentieth century and has been transmitted and taken up by a variety of pupils and work groups.

The wealth and depth of Sufi poetry cannot be captured in a single translation, and different translations focus variously on their poetic qualities, their spiritual understanding, their literal meaning or their contemporary relevance. Bardic Press publishes books by Khayyam to Hafiz.

They also publish new and classic works on the mythology of Wales and Ireland, including translations and accessible scholarship.
