The village church of Sankt Marienkirchen III

It is a hot summer evening, and the tree wishes it would have some shadows, from anything. The clouds in the sky are in the mood to play around a bit. The fields have run dry a bit and dream of rain.

Ogham is an alphabet that appears on monumental inscriptions dating from the 4th to the 6th century AD, and in manuscripts dating from the 6th to the 9th century. It was used mainly to write Primitive and Old Irish, and also to write Old Welsh, Pictish and Latin. It was inscribed on stone monuments throughout Ireland, particularly Kerry, Cork and Waterford, and in England, Scotland, the Isle of Man and Wales, particularly in Pembrokeshire in south Wales.

Ogham was probably pre-dates the earliest inscriptions - some scholars believe it dates back to the 1st century AD - as the language used shows pre-4th century elements. It is thought to have been modeled on or inspired by the Roman, Greek or Runic scripts. It was designed to write Primitive Irish and was possibly intended as a secret form of communication.

I removed the previous description of this image, a citation from Celtic Magic, a book by DJ Conway, because some people pointed out that her books are not a good reference for those who want to learn about the Ogham Alphabet.
Thank you for providing me that information!
I hope you all find this one a more suitable description!
