Contemporary Druidry: A Native Tradition? (Hardback)

The popular view of Druidry is that it is a peculiar, anachronistic pastime, of little relevance to society today. However, far removed from ancient or even Victorian representations, contemporary Druidry is positioning itself as an `indigenous religion' that responds to today's world. Contemporary Druidry has evolved considerably since its modern beginnings in 18th century England and in September 2010 The Druid Network was registered as a religious charity by the Charity Commission in the UK. Druid orders have long been representing themselves as the native or indigenous tradition of Britain, challenging existing definitions of `indigenous religion' as a kinship-based religion of first peoples.

In the first book of its kind, Suzanne Owen explores the problems with defining and categorising Druidry, offers a study of current Druid movements and activities, and discusses differing concepts of emplacement and indigeneity. Her fascinating research is based upon a mixture of discourse analysis of print and on-line texts written by contemporary Druids, interviews and participant observation, making this book the definitive guide to contemporary British Druidry.
