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[]

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.[2]
  • 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...
