We hear their chants in the Stone Circles. We listen to the heaven-inspired utterances of the Archdruid, as he stands on the capstone of a cromlech, in the eye of the sun, surrounded by the white-robed throng. We see the golden sickle reverently cutting off the sacred mistletoe. We look under the old oak at the aged Druid, instructing disciples in mystic lore, in verses never to be committed to writing. Should we credit the Druids with the introduction of Sun worship, Serpent reverence, and the adoration of Idols? Or were they new comers, arriving subsequent to the establishment of these various forms of paganism, and merely known a little before the rise of Christianity in Erin?
