Matholwch - Brythonic Tribal Polytheist

I would like to offer a personal vote of thanks to those who took my dishevelled notes and oftimes odd prose style and forged it into the article you all see here.

Thank you and bless you,

Da, Matholwch, yw gweld y nod cyfrin ar wefan y BBC!

Yes, indeed thank you. I wonder, though, is there a place for something on Iolo Morganwg, the genius, poet, mason, laudanum-taker, and many of many talents, who convened the most famous of the 18th-Century Druidic orders, Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, which is still going and of which I am a member?? He emphatically did not conceive of it as a return to Paganism, looking on Druidism as one of the first (and the purest) kinds of Christianity. He would have been beside himself with joy seeing Rowan Williams being accepted into the order last year...

Maybe when I get a bit of courage up!

Matholwch - Brythonic Tribal Polytheist

Borodar Dyddgu,

I was trying to be fairly non-specific about the whole thing. Provide an overview rather than focus on any particular individual or order.

Iolo was certainly a character, though I doubt one that would impress some readers because of his habit of 'filling in the blanks' smiley - winkeye.

Why don't you put an entry together on him. I, for one, would be fascinated to learn more about him.
