to my own Nation, religion in many denominations has been entwined
in its life as far back as the days of the Druids; for the incoming
Celts brought the Druids with them. So I hear you ask " who
were the Druids '? answer, nobody knows for sure, for hardly any
actual philosophies or beliefs of those ancient people exist:
so one is left to wonder who they really were.
That being so, the thought of telling you of some of the religious
institutions in my nation was born. Both
the Norman and the princes of my nation have helped to supply
the tangible proof that religious orders existed, for my princes
often as not took the incoming monks under their protection and
supplied them with land.
