This is a short introductory video by Robert Sepehr about Ireland, Druids, and legends. The rest of this article consists of the Book by John Toland’s HISTORY OF THE DRUIDS. Its first 72 pages were edited from the scanned text copy I was able to obtain. UPDATE! I have now put Toland’s intro and biography at the end of the actual Book!
The book begins with a very interesting biography of the writer John Toland, an Irish Christian intellectual who troubled the churches of the British Kingdom and Academia with his revolutionary but enlightened writings.
Below the introduction and biography you will find a very well resources book about the history of the Irish Druids, what they were up to, what they believed, what their practice was, and more. Enjoy this very interesting book.
