The Dim Echo of the Catcher

The paper will explore connections between Tolkien's comments on the name of an obscure Celtic deity worshipped in the 4th century (published in 1932 under the title "The Name 'Nodens'") and his evolving legendarium. It will demonstrate the interconnectedness of Tolkien's scholarly work and his legendarium, and how he was attracted to dim mythological borderlands.
