About This Quiz

The Druids were a Celtic faith that preceded the arrival of Christianity in the British Isles and Ireland. Druidism honors many gods and goddesses, though the pantheon is not fixed. Some of the primary beliefs of Druidism include the sacredness of all life, as well as the connection humans have with nature. The calendar of Druidic festivals is based on the sun and moon, with celebrations of events such as the solstice and the equinox, each of which occurs twice a year.

A key figure in Druidic tradition is the Bard, who was tasked with keeping the stories of that time alive. Unfortunately, Druids didn't have a lot of writing, and there are mostly only runes left from the time of their peak dominance. This means that record-keeping can be sketchy. However, the Bards did pass down some great epics, concerning figures such as the blind giant Mug Ruith, who could cause storms with just his breath, or the great warrior Bodhmall, who was a reluctant mother at first. There are also non-fighters such as Tlatchga, who learned her father's magical secrets during their journeys and unearthed sacred stones, and of course, everyone is familiar with Merlin, the Druid who appears in the Arthurian legend.
