beliefs, practices, while showing how they evolved and their basis in
ancient Celtic belief...
We concieve our journal as a traditional Celtic publication... We are not
neo-Pagans and our journal is not a neo-Pagan creation. It is a traditional
Pagan publication; we consider ourselves traditional Celtists (Our family
religion is called, by us Celtism)." Celtic history, lore, poetry, rituals,

concern of Cnl, is the multiplicity and mutability of reality, linked with
ancient Celtic mythopoetica. Cnl, believes that most 'druidism' today has
nothing to do with ancient form, but that much can be learned by going to
scholars and Irish sources. Cnl, emphasizes the study of Irish (Gaelige),
as a thaumatergic--liturgical language, believing a person's language
determines his/her reality.: Articles, linguistics, discussions, book
reviews. 16-24 pages. Subscriptions $9/year in U.S and Canada: $11/year

Druidism") edited by P. E. I. Bonewits. Scholarly emphasis. Bonewits is
creating a Pan-European reconstructionist tradition of Neo-Pagan Druidism.

hierarchial--or at least not democratic to the point of overthrowing the
Archdruid (Bonewits) himself-but really good for people searching for a
structured form of study on the Druidic path. Discusses beliefs,
linguistics, training, history, research, art, music, ritual.
