2.0 out of 5 stars Nearly useless without the references. 19 Sep 2013

I've liked some of my Kessinger Legacy Reprints. But this one is atrocious! It fails to mention that this document from cover to cover, including title pages and a blank page at the end is all of SIX PAGES LONG! It isn't a book on the Culdees and Culdee Worship, it is an excerpt of a longer book called "New Encylopedia of Freemasonry Part 1". That would be a fine thing to point out in the description don't you think?

The information is interesting, especially if you are looking for more insights into either Druidism via the Culdees or the Culdees themselves who are said to have had a "more pure form" of Christianity and chastised later missionaries for deliberate misinterpretations of the Bible. Sounds pretty fascinating doesn't it?

But what you get is a document full of footnotes that Kessinger Legacy Reprints could not be bothered to include the references to in the back. So save your money and get the FULL BOOK instead. This pamphlet is only useful as a quick reference tool if you have the book and want to decrease your damaging of the spine. Please, improve this print, Kessinger. I expect better from you and have seen better from you. This is beyond disappointing.

Some of what it does contain (as a review): Collected speculation on the Culdees, that Druidism flourished in the East as well as the West and did not cease to be Druidism when it happened to turn Christian. The Culdees were also Essenes, and the known for being schoolmasters who taught science and religion to the people. They believed in the immortality of the soul but not the resurrection of the body, did not believe in Jesus as a person nor the devil at all, and early Culdee priests were sometimes educated at Rome and were converted Druidical initiates. It is said that a Druidical College at Derry was converted into a Culdee Monastery.

This is possibly the first, more recent discussion on actual Druids than has been seen in some time. That there is information out there of the relationship between the Culdees and the Druids seems probable but this piece is maddeningly limited and, again, fails to include references so you can't track down the next piece in the puzzle.
