Comreton Calleios – May 2022

On May 14th-15th, 2022, Toutâ Galation will be hosting Comreton Calleios “Grove Assembly”, a FREE online convention through Zoom on Gaulish Polytheism.

Toutâ Galation is an organization dedicated to the revival, organization, and education of Gaulish Polytheism. We offer free lessons, hold events, and operate through the democratic vote of an initiated membership.

Comreton Calleios is an online convention we host twice a year, where members of our community and beyond give presentations on Gaulish Polytheism and adjacent topics that help enrich our practices. Check out some of our past Comretons on our Youtube channel.

Presentations

Abnoba Gaulish Goddess of the Wilds: An Introduction

by Tricûnos Trougocaricnos

A longtime member of the Gaulish Community, Tricûnos reveals the goddess Abnoba in his upcoming book published by Pagan Portals. In his presentation, he will be providing a sneak peek into this highly-anticipated work.

Secrets of the Rhaetians: Pre-Gaulish peoples and Their Effect on Gaul

by Renoturos Epomapos

Renoturos returns for an in-depth analysis on the mysterious Rhaetians exploring their culture, gods, and eventual Celtification and Gallo-Romanization as well as the lasting impact they had on Continental Celts and what lessons Gaulish Polytheism can learn from them today.

Thia Frankisk Aldsido: Renovating the Polytheism of Merovingian Gaul for Today

By Dagovis, Hromaholdis and Ingruoda Siniskalk of Thia Frankisk Aldsido

While Merovingian Gaul is typically outside of Toutâ Galation’s purview, our chronological neighbors in Frankish Heathenry can provide insight and a lens to how Gaul changed after the fall of the Roman province, as well as inspiration for our own Gaulish practices.

Ritual for the Gallo-Roman Holiday Mercuralia

by Viducos Brigantici

The fan-favourite Vidicus returns for another presentation after his initiation in Toutâ Galation under the name Viducos Brigantici. Join him as he explores the Gallo-Roman celebration Mercuralia, a perfect compliment to his essay on the Gaulish Mecuries.

Divine Pairings and Their Role in Modern Gaulish Polytheism

by Nertatis Cingetos

Across the Gaulish world, we find examples of deities paired together, especially as Romanization introduced new relationships between the gods of different cultures. Nertatis Cingetos will discuss examples of these pairings, their significance, and how they can be interpreted for a modern practice.

Distant Echoes – Stone Age Cosmologies and Their Reflections on Continental Celtic Deities

by Beroki-iluna

Get ready for an exciting trip into the distant past in search of the possible roots of two Gaulish Deities you are surely well familiar with. We will take a closer look at the shared circumpolar mythological background and examine how the connections between the skyscape and the landscape informed the beliefs of our early ancestors. After falling ill back in November, Beroki is here to deliver on a presentation we have all been waiting long to see!

Gaulish Rûniâs System of Nemeton Dumnonantu

by Trebomâros Auigani

Join Trebomâros Auigani, Chieftain of the Ár nDraíocht Féin Gaulish Kin, as he walks us through his work to develop a divination system based on the transalpine Lepontic alphabet.

Myth is Not Religion

by Aliakai

Join Aliakai as she delves into a problematic approach sometimes found in Gaulish Polytheism and other revivalist traditions. The reliance on myth in modern polytheistic religion can sometimes become unhealthy, idealizing the past in a contradictory way to our present society. Myths are a tool, not the be-all-end of praxis.
