Druidlsm: Ancient & modern
(AKA Druidism 101)
The original Druids constituted the entire intelligentsia of the Indo-
European peoples: their artists, historians, judges, polytheologians,
engineers, musicians, diviners, magicians and poets. This lecture
covers the history and prehistory of the lndo-European clergy and
their descendants. Isaac will discuss: the social structure of the
Indo-Europeans, the duties of their clergy, the genocide campaigns
against the ancient Druids, the survivals of Druidism in Celtic and
Baltic fringe areas, Druidic revivals during the last few centuries
(including the fraternal and Reformed Druids), and Isaac’s own
reconstructionist organization, Ar nDraiocht Féin: A Druid Fellow-
ship (A.D.F.). Recorded live at the 1989 Starwood Festival.
