Druidhe tradition left its mark across the isles of Scotland in place names like Loch an Druidhe (Lake of the Druids) and Sithean Mor (Hill of the Shining Ones). Druidhe philosophy and practice was later adopted by the Culdee, who’d migrated from Chaldea as the Culdich. They were named for khaldi, the ancient Armenian Supreme God.
The Culdee were believed to have been related to the Essenes, and along with the Druidhe, all three possessed secret, sacred knowledge which they passed on to their members, they wore white robes, believed in reincarnation and an evolving soul, employed the symbol of the dove, practiced tolerance, believed in the equality of women, and referred to themselves as ‘Sons of Light’.
The Celtic variant, druidh, means ‘to enclose within a circle’, a title used in the context of an individual who is admitted into the Mysteries of an inner religious group. Furthermore, druis derives from truwis, meaning ‘a doctor of faith’, along with the Germanic variant trowis, ‘a revealer of truth’.
Yet the Druidhe didn’t appear casually out of nowhere. As their formal title, the Lords of Light, suggests, they were the continuation of an age-old tradition dating back into prehistory, since the same aphorism applied to the Lords of Anu, otherwise known as ‘Shining Ones’ who originated from the Armenian Highlands.
Upon becoming the royal House of Scythia, where they were known as Tuadhe d’Anu, they migrated to Ireland and the Scottish Isles, where the name altered linguistically to Tuatha Dé Danann, the teachers of an ancient wisdom that led to the founding of… the Druidhe order.
