Oh look shiny!!!!

Looky what hhbarmaid linked me to!!!!!

Hallows in Arthurian Legend
She found it at Leaky.

Notice the four guardians and the similarity of the known founder's artifacts and the objects listed????

I am getting all sorts of watery-eyed just reading this stuff!

I am simply giddy!!!!!!

I just posted this over at RS.org in a thread on this topic. I think it was this link that first got me thinking along these lines:

Someone somewhere said something (I have looked at too many discussions of this today) that made me think about the idea that if LV used relics from the founders the objects themselves, prior to being used by LV, could be thought of as "hallowed relics" -- which is sort of thought provoking. Could the use of these relics have been yet another mistake made by Tom? Could the objects themselves somehow assist Harry in the destruction of the soul pieces held in them?

This line of thinking got me wondering if there could be other objects that are somehow "hallowed" that can be used to destroy horcruxes -- some sort of anti-horcrux.

Much to think about for sure.

Oh thank you. This is all enough to drive us nutty before it's all over.

and we can't forget about Harry/Lily's eyes.

or Dumbledore's 'smile' in GOF.

yeah! Thank you so much for the link!!!!! The Deathly Hallows are the Horcruxes then....I suppose. I think that works very well actually.

I´m not suprised it all comes down to Celtic mythology. Ever since I´ve started studying the subject in depth I felt the connection, every book having a connection, reference, or joke involving something and other in Celtic legend. The most surprising of all were the horcruxes (yes, that´s Celtic).
