Yesterday I found this link on the Confessions of a Hedge Witch blog entitled Ronald Hutton lecture on the History of the Horned God with a link to Ronald Hutton’s great Druidcast podcast on the subjects of Pan and Kernunnos from Medieval times through the early 1900s. Hutton is a well known old English historian who has written a number of books, some of which raised up some dust with reconstructionist witches and pagans, but his lectures and books tell what we know historically instead of some fairy tale. Just hit on the podcast link and it will download. The first and last fifth of it is music, but the central lecture is fascinating and funny. And he does the best rendering of Aleister Crowley’s Hymn to Pan that i have ever heard. Enjoy!
