The Kolbrin is a collection of eleven books, six Egyptian and five Celtic, first published in New Zealand in 1994 by the Hope Trust (now dissolved) and the Culdian Trust, a metaphysical organisation based loosely on the original ‘Culdees’ or Celtic followers of Christianity brought to south-west Britain by Joseph of Arimathea in the 1st century AD.
Source ~ HERENo-one knows what the word ‘Kolbrin’ means. It’s probably a garbled version of the Welsh word Coelbren, meaning either the name of a village south-west of the Brecon Beacons National Park, or Coelbren y Beirdd, a supposed ‘druidic’ alphabet allegedly invented by the writer Iolo Morganwg (1747-1826) whose validity has been questioned by scholars. Some have suggested that Iolo Morganwg himself forged the Kolbrin.

These paperbacks have numbered paragraphs for easy reference, but do not include the all-important preliminary and end material. Instead, the US publishers have tried to reconstruct the history of the Kolbrin text. They think it might have been written in Egyptian hieratic script after the Exodus of the Jews, then translated into Phoenician script and taken to Britain (among other ports of call) on trading ships; from there it would have been rendered into Old Celtic/Brythonic, then Old English, then Biblical English and on into modern English. They reckon that the Celtic books were written between 20 and 500 AD. The historical accuracy of their introduction has been questioned.
How did so much of the text get lost? Well, according to the Introduction, the Kolbrin manuscripts were salvaged from Glastonbury Abbey at the time of the great 1184 fire which destroyed virtually all the buildings and many of its treasures. We are told that the fire was arson intended to destroy the heretical manuscripts in the library, but the Kolbrin manuscripts – which have been considered heretical on many levels – were secretly housed elsewhere at the time and preserved.

Jumping forward several hundred years, we know that the manuscripts were looked after by a group called the Culdians who were descended from a 14th-century Scottish community led by a man called John Culdy. These later Culdians were travelling smiths and craftsmen, sometimes known as ‘Koferils’, who followed the beliefs of those Celtic Culdees I mentioned earlier, (from the Gaelic Culdich/Domesday Book quidam advanae Culdich or ‘certain strangers’). At an unknown date some of the manuscripts were transcribed on to metal plates and became known as The Bronzebook of Britain; under this title they were written down in book form in the 17th century. The text was modernised in the late 19th/early 20th century, incorporating some salvaged Celtic manuscripts which had not been transcribed on to metal plates, known as the Coelbook. We also know that for a period of time the Kolbrin was buried under a stone cairn in the mountains of Wales.

Originally, the Introduction tells us, there were five great book-boxes containing 132 scrolls and five ring-bound volumes which comprised The Great Book of the Egyptians. But over the centuries many of the books have been lost or destroyed – the Lesser Book of the Egyptians, the Book of the Trial of the Great God, the Sacred Register, the Book of Establishment, the Book of Magical Concoctions, the Book of Songs, the Book of Creation and Destruction, and the Book of Tribulation have all gone.
The underlying story
Beneath its overriding metaphysical texts, The Kolbrin carries an underlying story – and it’s a fascinating one, with its themes of genetics, global catastrophes and the search for immortality.
The story in the Egyptian Books
At the very beginning of human life, different species of men exist in the world. The Book of Origins states that there were two species:
Wodewose ~ TheTaymouth Hours– A primitive indigenous species called ‘the Children of Earth’, known as ‘Yoslings’, ‘half-folk’, ‘not true men’, ‘Sons of Bothas’, and ‘kinsfolk to the beasts of the forest’. They are also called ‘Men of Zumat’, meaning ‘they who inherit death’ [descended from a highly developed ape?].
(The Book of Gleanings, set later in time, lists even more species:
– ‘The Grand Company’, who subsequently withdraw in disgust at the behaviour of mankind.
– ‘The Children of God’, led by a wise father, who ‘knew Truth and lived in the midst of peace and plenty’.
– ‘The Children of Men’, a primitive indigenous species who were wild and savage, clothed in the skins of beasts.
– ‘The Men of Zumat (Yoslings) who were even wilder.)
According to the Kolbrin, the different species should always have stayed separate. But when, eventually, matings start to occur, this is described as the first ‘defilement’. The Children of God are then banished from the gardenland and it becomes a desert.The first Yosling man to mate with a woman of the Children of God dies of his illness, but his lover gives birth to a daughter. This hybrid offspring is described as ‘a cuckoo-child’. She is an unusual female with long red hair – never seen before – and she lives by herself in the forest as a sorceress, preferring the company of Yoslings. Eventually she marries a great hero of the Children of God in the land of Krowkasis (the Caucasus). Versions of her story appear in both the Egyptian and the Celtic books.
The Kolbrin makes clear that it is woman, and woman alone, who is responsible for the two genetic defilements of the race of the Children of God, for it is she who weakens and mates, first, with a Yosling, then with the beasts of the forest. By defiling her race, she does herself a great disfavour, for the Children of God regard woman as the equal of man – whereas the Children of Men use her as a sex-slave and a chattel, which over time becomes the norm throughout the human race.
In the intensely cold age that follows, human beings survive by hiding in caves. They are terrorised by giant beasts until, following ‘heavenly rebellion and turmoil’, a cataclysm hardens the face of the Earth and turns the beasts to stone. Subsequently, the Earth is destroyed by the Flood of Atuma, then by the Deluge.
When Osireh/Yosira the Great One comes from the West with the People of Light seeking refuge in Egypt after the destruction of his own land, Ramakui of the seven cities, Land of Copper, he finds a population living in holes in the ground; following the cataclysm, a plague has wiped out all the adult population and with it all knowledge of basic living skills. The remaining population includes ‘men who were blood kindred with the beasts of the forest or with fowl or with serpent’, who ‘dwelt together according to their kinship, and were divided thereby’.
Dagda on the Gundestrup Cauldron.Osireh teaches the lost generation how to grow corn, to spin and to carve stone, as well as writing and numbers. But when he tries to teach the people about God, they do not understand him, so he invents signs and simple tales (the first-ever myths) to help them understand. He tells them that when he dies, the sun will become their adoptive parent in his place. He is much beloved by the common people. Osireh has brought with him from Ramakui amazing technology: the Sacred Eye and the Firestone ‘which gathers the light of the sun’– forms of knowledge lost to us now, just as we have lost ‘the rituals of sea shells’ and ‘the song of the stars’; above all, he brings with him, out of his people’s transparent temples, ‘the light that shines when darkness falls without being lit’.
Osharian Celtic Druids.Osireh is not like other men. Wearing robes of black linen and a red headdress, he has ‘the likeness of a god’ and his bones are ‘not as those of others’. When eventually he dies ‘in the manner of men’, he leaves behind him a flourishing civilisation.
Later, wise men come to Egypt from Zaidor , another land recently destroyed. They are great astronomers, they reject the idea of the sun as a god, and they have a unique mummification practice of covering the bodies of their dead with potter’s clay and leaving it to harden.

The narrative continues. It has now become the story of the Sons of Fire, whose quest is to guard the Great Book of Egypt and find a safe home for themselves. The Sons of Fire are said to be highly skilled metalworkers of Tyre, people of the ‘twin cities’ [Tyre and Sidon?]. Knowing they must go north, the Sons of Fire make their scrolls and metal-plate texts watertight, load their provisions and set sail. But the place where they try to settle first and build a city is full of wild men; it is on the edge of the known world and the now-destroyed Land of Mists and Kingdom of the Trees, where the dampness causes sickness and many of them die.
After some years, knowing they will all die if they stay there any longer, the Sons of Fire set sail again northwards. They come across a group of Greek refugees from Troy and travel together. Eventually, they arrive on the south coast of Britain. At this time, post-Ice Age Britain is still an empty land inhabited by Painted Men (small, tattooed Picts) and a few 6-cubit/9-foot giants – survivors of the cataclysm that destroyed most of the race of giants.
Brutus of Troy, the Brutus Stone in TotnesThe Trojans sail on to Dadana [later called Dodonesse in Holinshed’s Chronicle, now known as Totnes.] with their leader Corineus and, after slaying the few remaining giants still living in Belharia [St Michael’s Bay?] −‘The same giants are builders of great temples and they are six cubits tall’ − the migrants settle in what is now Cornwall. Several different languages are known to have been spoken in Britain at this time.
