" The Black Book is dated to about 1250 but much of the material it contains is much older. It appears that the scribe put the most importance on the Merlin material, although the whole book is a mixture of Christian beliefs & older pagan myth & lore. The Christian material may have been added simply to make the book more acceptable within it's own place & time. Elements of older Celtic pagan ideas are found in the text, along with what Meirion Pennar calls the "core of THE MERLIN LEGEND" which may date back as far as the 6th cent..." . GIFT QUALITY.
