A great book on this subject is "Celtic Spirituality," by Sarah Owen.

It might be a great source for modern Celtic spirituality with heavy New Age overtones. But it has nothing to do with the beliefs and spirituality of the ancient Celts.

Thank you both for the reply. I m sorry about any missinformation as I previously mentioned my knowledge on this field is limited. I simply gathered a few information in order to activate this forum since it was always interesting and I would like to know more about druidity. Thank you for the corrections and additional information, they are always highly apreciated.

I hope to see more on this forum

Hi Fox,

The Iron Age Celts are a particular area of interest to me. I'd be happy to provide you with good book titles if you'd like to learn more about them from a historical viewpoint.

I apologize if I recommended a bad book. I like it, but am always looking for good books. My interests lie with Irish Celtic Spirituality, in particular.

For the reason we know very little about Celts is the same reason we know so little of the Druids. They never wrote anything down!
And, when the Druids were driven out of Wales, they settled on the island of Anglesey . But they were still having influence on the mainland.The Roman Army then raided the island and slaughtered every man,woman, and child. The Druids were no more!
Recently there has been a rise in Neo-Druidism led by a man who has named himself Arthur Pendragon, and claims to be a direct descendant of King Arthur. (How's that for 1st Class role playing?)

Yea, in high school I took a class on world religions and our big research assignment was to research a religion/cult and present to the class your thesis if it was a cult or religion. My friend went with Druidism, and she struggled because there's no written evidence of their culture outside of speculation. This doesn't make it easy when you want to learn more about them or a deity and all you can find is 'this statue is the only evidence this Celtic deity existed'. I've started researching the Celtic religion and it isn't easy. Some books on the history and religious practices would be wonderful.

What little they left behind is hardly proof of anything, there secrets remain as they are, unknown. Neo-druidry is probably far from the ancient-druidry beliefs.

It is true that many still believe in Nature Spirits, I'm actually Irish myself, and I do believe. In fact I believe I see nature spirits or feel them, though that's just my belief. Great information by the way! ~ Olwyn
