"César, Druid of the Fir Bolg" © Jim Fitzpatrick.
"Among the greatest mysteries of ancient Ireland were the druids,
a mysterious caste of Celtic society composed of wizards,
philosophers, scientists, scholars, theologians, shamans,
doctors, warriors, musicians, comedians and poets that
formed a broad-based intellectual class whose exact function
in Celtic society is still not fully understood.
Generally speaking, the druids were essentially a priestly
class whose primary function was the acquisition, memorization
and transmission of knowledge. However, just as in modern education
one can choose a course of study from scores of different professions,
so too the types of knowledge that the druids studied and
taught to their followers also varied dramatically, from the sublime to
the mundane, from the esoteric to the comic. As such, because the classification
“druid” encompassed such a wide array of varying professions,
the term is usually subdivided into three different subclasses: “wizards”,
“druids” and “poets”."
Not only did the ancient Magogians bring their religious beliefs with them on their long journey from Central Asia, they also brought their superstitions and a deep belief in both the supernatural and the afterlife. These giants in the Earth brought with them an entire culture based upon the belief that the visible world was only one part of a much larger universe that was inhabited by fairies, monsters, dragons, mermaids and creatures of every size and description.
