His long-awaited book on Druidism, Druidry, and Draíocht

Bonewits’s Essential Guide to Druidism

Author: Isaac Bonewits [a Witchvox Sponsor]

Publisher: Citadel Press / Kensington

Category: Druidism History and Practice   Level: All

With a foreword by Philip Carr-Gomm, Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards Ovates & Druids!

The most renowned (or notorious) Druid priest in North America, Isaac has spent the last four decades devoted to Druidic study. Now, he imparts his wisdom through this elegant and thoughtful tour of ancient and modern Druidism. With scholarship and wit, Isaac explores the Paleopagan, Mesopagan, and Neopagan Druids, and helps to demystify their origins, their rituals, and their prayers.

This book provides a complete overview of Druidic history, from its origins amid the Proto-Indo-European peoples, to its extermination by the Roman Empire and the Roman Church, its revival by fraternal organizations in the eighteenth century, and its triumphant renaissance as a polytheistic earth religion in the twentieth century. He discusses many historical notes and ritual details not found in other books on the topic, including the dangerous links between pubs and the founding of Druidic organizations. He also opines on the nature of Druidism, Druidry, and Draíocht and speculates on their future evolution.

For the first time in print, read a detailed comparison of the Reformed Druids of North America, the Order of Bards Ovates & Druids, Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship, and the Henge of Keltria in terms of beliefs, practices, and rituals.

Appendices include online and offline Druidic resources, etymological explorations of Indo-European clergy terms, and a list of good books on the topic (as well as bad ones to save your money on) .

Author's Notes: It's taken me forty years to write this one! I tried very hard to avoid the usual topics discussed and to bring out (a) the most essential facts for people to know and (b) unusual sources and texts. You won't find another Druid book like it!
