The Holy men & women were in Albyn long before the culdees showed up.Who gives a Fuck? there's a lot of beautiful thinking Women there now!
Senanus fled to the Isle of Scattery & resolved no woman would set foot on this desolate flat spot of dirt, County Clare.
He was a bit of a freak eh!
I don't think anyone lives on Scattery anymore DC.
If you go back long enough, there was equality between men & women, respect for each other.
The Druids were no exception.
You don't know what you are talking about. We are not talking new age druidism here. The Ancient Celtic Druids had ten levels of marriage depending on wealth and status, and also initiation ceremonies restricted to young boys and men.
Celtic Druid women were the administrators whilst the men were the defenders and the workers.
Please don't distort the truth for your own ends. The acceptance of the equal worth of the individual in nature, irrespective of marriage, wealth, status, initiation, and occupation is what mattered then, and what matters now. The Celtic Druids paid homage to the sexual differences, but the equality that is brought about by a knowledge and a veneration of the sexual differences between the male and the female and what they both have to contribute equally to society as different sexes.
