Druid

In Celtic polytheism the word druid denotes the priestly class in ancient Celtic societies, which existed through much of Western Europe north of the Alps and in the British Isles until they were supplanted by Roman government and, later, Christianity. Druidic practices were part of the culture of all the tribal peoples called “Keltoi” and “Galatai” by Greeks and “Celtae” and “Galli” by Romans, which evolved into modern English “Celtic” and “Gaulish”. They combined the duties of priest, arbitrator, healer, scholar, and magistrate. for more click here
