I think it would be a good idea to change the Drudism category page to Celtic Neopaganism. I think it would be more inclusive of non-Druidic forms of Celtic Spirituality such as Celtic Reconstructionist Paganism, Celtic Shamanism, and even Celtic forms of Witchcraft (though not *necessarily* Wicca). I even have a suggestion for how to organize it, if you all are interested:
Celtic Neopaganism refers to Neopagan movements based on Celtic polytheism. It is a very diverse form of spirituality that ranges between traditional to ecstatic or initiatory, to eclectic in basis.
Types of Celtic Neopaganism
- Celtic Reconstructionist Paganism (CR) – Celtic polytheistic reconstructionism.
- Pàganachd / Págánacht (Paganism or Heathenism)
- Senistrognata (Ancestral customs of the Celts)
- Ildiachas Atógtha (Reconstructed Polytheism)
- Gaol Naofa - Gaelic Polytheism
- Sinnsreachd - Gaelic Polytheistic Tribalism
- Celtocrābiion - Gaulish Polytheism
- Celtoi - Ancient Celtic Polytheism (in German speaking countries)
- Celtic Neoshamanism – a kind of neoshamanism based on Michael Harner's controversial "Core Shamanism"; proponents include John and Caitlin Matthews.
- Celtic Wicca – a loose syncretism of Wicca and Celtic mythology.
- Druidism or Neo-Druidism, which grew out of the Celtic revival in 18th century Romanticism.
- Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF), formed in 1983
- Church of the Universal Bond
- Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD), formed in 1964
- Reformed Druids of North America (RDNA), formed in 1963
- The Druid Network, the first contemporary pagan organization to be recognized as a charity in the United Kingdom
- The Druid Order, formed c. 1910 but claiming origins as early as 1717
Let me know what you think...
