The following books are primary source translations for the Indo-European cultures ADF draws its inspiration from, including Celtic, Hellenic, Norse, Roman, Slavic, and Vedic. Relevance to religious practices varies, and some of the books may provide more of a “cultural flavor”.

Please note that this is not our recommended reading list, which is much more accessible for general reading. Also note that the links below are to hard-copy editions available at Amazon; there may be freely-available texts on the web, or cheaper hard-copy versions available through other book-sellers such as Barnes & Noble.

Note: You can donate every time you shop at Amazon though Amazon Smile. Choose or search for “Ar Ndraiocht Fein A Druid” as your charity – thank you!


Some of these sources are available at CELT: The Corpus of Electronic Texts.


Note: You may be able to find some of the above texts freely-available at the Online Medieval and Classical Library.


Note: If you can get it, the out-of-print Complete Sagas of the Icelanders may be more economical if you are committed to reading all the sagas (may be cheaper on other book sites). Also, we recommend the Viking Society for Northern Research as a source of excellent scholarly works regarding the Norse peoples.


Note: Many of the above books are in the highly recommended Loeb Classical Library by Harvard University Press.



Note: Vedams Books is also good for Vedic works not carried by Amazon.
