Fêtes & rituels du druidismeSubject: Druidism. By: Viviane Le Moullec
What exactly is Druidism ? According to the Robert encyclopedia, it is “… the religion of the Druids. A word of Gallic origin (1213-BC), Druid was the name given to the former Gallic or Celtic priests. Each year, with a golden sickle, the Druids picked from the oak trees the sacred mistletoe. They played a religious, educational and judicial role, and undoubtedly wielded a measure of political clout.” They also possessed complete Initiation in theology, cosmology and mathematics. This comprehensive book, thorough and very detailed, consists of eight sections: 1. Learn all about the Celts and their classic art religion, the Druidism: the History, the religious foundations, the priestly functions. 2. Rituals. 3. Three traditional prayers: the big druidic prayer, the prayer to Belen and the prayer to the Celts. 4. The family rites as they relate to birth, engagement, marriage, death, and the afterlife. 5. The spirit of the eight ceremonies of the calendar. 6. Eight rites of the calendar. 7. The rites of enthronement. 8. Ultimate questions on druidism. The author, Viviane Le Moullec, wrotes for years for a scientific journal. She is a practitioner of plant-alchemy for the past twenty years, and she shares her research with fellow devotees that create their own alchemical elixirs. She is also recognized as Belline specialist. This work on Druidism, the product of 30 years’ studies, is Mrs Le Moullec’s latest publication. She lives in the Finistere region of France.
