Pagan druid claims anger archbishop (BBC, 4 August, 2002)
Archbishop of Canterbury elect Dr Rowan Williams has hit back at newspaper reports he is dabbling in paganism.

He is being inducted as a 'druid' to the Gorsedd of the Bards during a historic ceremony at the National Eisteddfod in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, on Monday.

He will join the mythical circle of Wales' key cultural contributors in a ritual The Times suggested was linked to ancient paganism.

Supposedly he threatened to turn one reporter into a newt. Posted by Orrin Judd at August 5, 2002 11:04 AM
