Centuries before whisperings began, of secret knowledge being handed down from the ancient Greeks, through shrouded fraternities such as the Rosicrucians and Freemasons, the Druids were slowly and steadfastly creating priests and philosophers of their own, akin to the Brahmans of India, the Magi of the Persians, as well as the hierophants and scholars of what would eventually become known to the world as the Western Mystery Tradition..
With slightly less than 2 chapters of information in a 5 chapter book it could have been much shorter than it already was. The narrator was so enchanted with his own voice that the experience was completely impersonal as a listener. Like a poor Actor reading a script for the 1st time it was painfully obvious he was reading and not speaking to the listener. I will end up buying a book on druids and reading it for myself, but certainly not this one.
If you could sum up The Ancient Druids in three words, what would they be?
A group so common yet in many backgrounds this is seen as some dark religion. The work allowed for the path of religious development and removed the mystery and opened a better understanding of the quality of the people. The knowledge of the people and priesthood is so much more beautifully presented.
What about Adam Hanin’s performance did you like?
Good recording. He has a deep voice tone and clear enunciation. Read with excitement to present the historical data.
