Faerie Tales | Rev. Robert Kirk

Once again I revisit a case from the past, and something that I’ve had an intense interest in since my youngest years - faeries. Yes, those whimsical little flying folk that live in trees and in knolls. I think most people think of Tinkerbell when they think of faeries, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, faeries and their lore go back hundreds upon hundreds of years. This week’s episode explores one man who has such a connection with the faerie folk that he’s considered the leading expert on the topic. His name is Reverend Robert Kirk, and if you believe the tales, and his journals, not only did he write on the topic of faeries and document their tales and existence, but he spent time with them, lived with them, and perhaps even punished by them.

It wasn’t until after his death that Kirk became known for his journals and stories, and it’s even believed that maybe he didn’t die at all. He had such a fondness for the seelie realm that he perhaps chose to stay there, leaving his mortal body behind. Of course, this can’t be proven, but it’s a lovely thought, and gives hope to those that want to believe in an afterlife. Maybe the Reverend lives on with the faeries to this day. For more information, and my thoughts on the whole thing, you’ll just have to listen to the episode.
