This paper looks at the ancient religion of Druidry, providing an account of its history, its rebirth, and beliefs. The paper also explains that there is a distinction between the concept of the Druid in pre-modern times and those who claim to be Druids today.
From the Paper:''Even at a definitional level, the Druidry of the modern day proves difficult to accurately describe due to its changing nature to fit modern times and diverse practices. Much of modern Druidry has been recreated from what people think the ancient religion of the Druids looked like and then adapted to try and fit a modern world. Phillip Carr-Gomm, the current leader of The Order of Bards Ovates and Druids, writes to express this view by starting ``a spiritual tradition should not be treated like a fossil- if it is to be of value it needs to grow and evolve, and adapt to the needs of the people and of a world that is constantly changing''. However, there seems to be a distinction between the concept of the Druid in pre-modern times and those who claim to be Druids this day.''
