Druidism evolved out of the tribal cultures of Britain, Ireland, and western France more than 2,000 years ago. In the 17th century it experienced a revival, which has continued to this day. Contemporary Druids can now be found all over the world, and Druidry’s appeal lies in its focus on a reverence for the natural world and its belief in the value of personal creativity, ...more

A superb introduction to modern druidry.

Eu sempre tive curiosidade em o que significaria ser um druida, se calhar desde que li as brumas de Avalon, quando conheci a Juliet Marillier e sabendo que pertencia à OBOD (The Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids)mais curiosa fiquei. Contudo, apesar da sua simpatia e disponibilidade em responder a todas as questões dos fans, e apesar da relação especial de amizade que a Juliet mantém com os fans portugueses, achei de mau tom e inconveniente, em qualquer dos encontros com ela colocar questões tão ...more

Philip Carr-Gomm's book is an excellent and very short read on the basic aspects of Druidry. The book reads like an extremely extended pamphlet, but this is a good thing. As a Druidic student, I am constantly asked by co-workers and friends just what Druids believe. In this 100-page (not including the Notes, Glossary, Further Reading, and Resources and Contacts sections), I have a short reader I can hand to them to answer the typical questions. Then, when they return with more questions, I have ...more

Para quem nada sabia sobre o Druidismo, muito aprendi com esta leitura. De forma clara e objetiva, o autor explica, organizando-se por temas através de capítulos, a origem desta religião, quem a pratica, como a pratica, em que consiste, etc... dando fontes no final para quem quiser saber ainda mais sobre este tema.
Por vezes tive sensação de que se repetiam algumas ideias já desenvolvidas, e por isso não dou a classificação máxima.
Recomendo a quem se interessa por esta religião pois aqui está uma
This is a fun little book. It's very short (100 pages) but a great little introduction to Druids. If you have a family or friend who is a Druid or has expressed interest in the faith, I would recommend this. It gives you a nice overview of what it is that Druids believe, their history and practice.
