From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A group of Neo-druids from the Sylvan Grove of the OBOD at Stonehenge on the morning of the summer solstice 2005.

Celtic Neopaganism refers to Neopagan movements based on, or loosely inspired by, historical Celtic polytheism. There are at least three currents to be distinguished:

There is a certain amount of overlap, double membership or "cross-pollination" between some of these groups, in particular between the more historically oriented currents of Neo-druidism and CR on one hand, and more syncretic Neo-druid groups (such as the Reformed Druids of North America) and New Age or Wicca on the other.
