  • A druid was a member of the priestly and learned class in the ancient Celtic societies of Western Europe, Britain and Ireland. They were suppressed by the Roman government and, later, the arrival of Christianity.[citation needed] Druids combined the duties of priest, arbitrator, healer, scholar, and magistrate. Despite neo-druidic believers, it is unknown whether or not women were historically allowed to serve as druids.[citation needed] Evidence both for and to the contrary is cited by writers of the neo-druid revival.

    Also for some fun reading you might want to check out the 21 Lessons of Merlin and the sequel. Why are you asking if I may?

  • Druidry has become a vital and dynamic Nature-based spirituality that is flourishing all over the world, and that unites our love of the Earth with our love of creativity and the Arts.
    And flowing through all the exciting new developments in modern Druidism is the power of an ancient tradition: the love of land, sea and sky - the love of the Earth our home.

  • What you will discover about Druidism practices is what is referred to as Neopaganism (New Pagan Practices). Unfortunately all the information and such on druids were destroyed so what you see now is a reconstructed practiced built off of what information they could find on these ancient practitioners.
