Christian Cyclopedia

About the Cyclopedia


Priests of Celts of ancient Gaul, Brit., and Ireland; their learning, transmitted orally, was a mixture of religion, natural science, and medicine; among their objects of veneration were the oak and mistletoe. Though prominent politically and socially, Druids succumbed to the advance of Roman civilization in Gaul and S. Brit. and to the influence of Christianity in N. Brit. and Ireland. See also Celtic Church.
