The Druid Teachings of Ross Nichols|
In the Grove of the Druids
Author: Philip Carr-Gomm [a Witchvox Sponsor]
Publisher: Watkins Publishing
Category: History/Mythology Level: Intermediate
In the Grove of the Druids is a major study of the work of one of the seminal thinkers in Western Paganism. Ross Nichols was Chief of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids until his death in 1975. He was a man who believed passionately in the power of myth, poetry, ritual, and drama, and in the interconnectedness of the world's great religious systems.
This fascinating and wide-ranging selection of Ross Nichol's work contains writing on key themes including ritual, festivals, mythology, symbolism, temple architecture, and archeology, and the links between Druidry and other ancient wisdom traditions. It is the essential resource for students of Druidry and lovers of Celtic spirituality.
Includes a biography of Ross Nichols, a Foreword by Professor Ronald Hutton, rare archive photographs, sketches and letters of Ross Nichols, a complete Chronology, Bibliography and Index. From the Introduction: "Much of the pleasure of reading Ross lies in finding the gems embedded within his work: a turn of phrase, an image, a connection between two ideas or facts which you hadn't seen before...he is a weaver of ideas, images, facts and details."
264 pages including 8 pages of photographs.
"A valuable contribution to the history of our tradition." Druid's Voice magazine.
"Carr-Gomm, who succeeded Nichols as Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD), has produced a curious work which is part eulogy, part magickal biography and part edited selection of Nichols’ writings. Being partly so many things it isn’t really any one of them, which makes it somewhat difficult to review meaningfully but perhaps we can sum it up as an appreciation of an individual, a history of an order and an introduction to the ideas upon which the latter was founded."
Excerpt from White Dragon review.
