Druids, ancient Celtic priestly order in Gaul (France), Britain, and Ireland, respected for their learning in astronomy, law, and medicine, for their gift of prophecy, and as lawgivers and leaders. Little is known of their religious rites, though human sacrifice may have been involved. Because of their power, they were banned by the Romans.
