Holy languages

by pasdelabas

Arabic is a wholly language. Language in which the angel Gabriel spoke to Mohammed. The holy language of the Koran is one whose themselves and consonants in and of themselves have some materiality and thus impact on the lives of those around.  This idea of language carrying on certain magical properties reminded me of the work by Robert Graves in “the White Goddess”. Third to the early language used by the Bards.
