Oh well, I tried Divinatory Future Readers. When they advertise, I ask why them they don’t know my email and that I want to know the future.
Scientifically , the score is Hospital 0 , Iridologist Practitioner-Person 1.
In my case, it detected the 2 food allergies I have when a hospital allergy test didn’t. The response is in small dots where the iris top-to-bottom is said to represent the body head-to-toe.
And interesting times for Pagans of Spain when Catholics and Islam had frank, constructive conversations for 600 years. Then the French joined the dialogue at Tours in 732 and made some polite small-talk.
Julius the Caesar rambled on about visiting Pegwell Bay. He said druids handled divine worship, the due performance of sacrifices, private or public, and the interpretation of ritual questions, being one of the two respected classes along with the equites and that they performed the function of judges. He claimed druids recognized the authority of a single leader, who would rule until his death, when a successor would be chosen by vote or through conflict. He remarked that they met annually at a sacred place in the region occupied by the Carnute tribe in Gaul, while they viewed Britain as the centre of druidic study; and that they were not found amongst the German tribes to the east of the Rhine. Many young men were trained to be druids, during which time they had to learn all the associated lore by heart. He also claimed their main teaching was “the souls do not perish, but after death pass from one to another”. They were concerned with “the stars and their movements, the size of the cosmos and the earth, the world of nature, and the power and might of the immortal gods”, indicating they were involved with not only such common aspects of religion as theology and cosmology, but also astronomy. Caesar held that they were “administrators” during rituals of human sacrifice, for which criminals were usually used, and that the method was through burning in a wicker man.
But who knows? Do you believe Tacitus? Tacitus’ other writings discuss the life of his father-in-law, Agricola, the general responsible for much of the Roman conquest of Britain, mainly focusing on his campaign in Britannia (De vita et moribus Iulii Agricolae) but critics say that land is a myth like Russia which “is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma”. (the alleged Winston Churchill).
The Surrey temple had a tree.
“Devadāru is a Sanskrit word referring to Cedrus deodara (Himalayan cedar), from the Pinaceae family. It is classified as a medicinal plant in the system of Āyurveda (science of Indian medicine) . It is native to the western Himalayas and the Indian subcontinent. It is worshiped as a divine tree among the Hindus and has several legends related to it. It is composed of the Sanskrit words deva (divine) and dāru (tree).”Source: _ Wisdom Library: Āyurveda and botany.
Gaelic darach “boat of oak” resembles Urdu (Pakistan) darakht “tree” used for fine wood crafts.
The term daru is familiar as the possible root of druid and associates these 2 cultures. It seems that much Indian tradition came from the Mitanni and Mari people of Asia Minor-Iran.
This head-dress has a 5 spoked wheel which is not ban-the-bomb but may be ban-the-ballista weapon of Rome. Early Welsh pimp, Greek pente and Sanskrit panca means “five”.”Pandita was a title in Indian Buddhism awarded to scholars who have mastered the five sciences in which a learned person was traditionally supposed to be well-versed. The five sciences are: science of language , science of logic , science of medicine , science of fine arts and crafts , and science of spirituality . The stipulation can be traced to (but may well predate) the Mahavana, by Maitreya-Natha (ca. 270-350 CE), which states: “Without becoming a scholar in the five sciences, not even the supreme sage can become omniscient. For the sake of refuting and supporting others, and for the sake of knowing everything himself, he makes an effort in these [five sciences].”
The fallow deer (Dama dama) can weigh to 100kg. Are the hooves male or female?
The Surrey druid head-dress can be found at google [Wanborough Roman temple}. I can’t post the web address.
There was one connection where the Bible approved of a pagan system. The Persians had beliefs which resembled the Bible and possibly related to Druids in some ways.
King James Bible
Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; Isaiah 45.1.
Cyrus was perhaps Zoroastrian.
Roman buildings were used after Romans departed.
The word ovate has the same word-root as vatican “prophecy”, Old Irish faith, Welsh ofydd. Vatican was an Etruscan word in Celtic times and then Roman. Celts were on Etruria’s border and at one stage invaded Rome.
greetings to all.
Yes Stonehenge was Neolithic but maybe was used by some Celts.
The bishop’s palace of Bath. It should be a nice spot for a pensioner. Maybe he could knock at the tradesman’s entrance and ask for charity alms.
