Senobessus Segomarî Curriculum

The Senobessus Segomarî Curriculum is a curriculum adjacent to our Basic Curriculum. This is based on the original Basic Curriculum created by our founder, Segomâros Widugeni and draws from his online articles that were eventually compiled into his book Ancient Fire. While completing this curriculum does not earn the rights of initiation into Toutâ Galation, it does provide excellent learning and an opportunity to dip your toes into Gaulish Polytheism before starting the more difficult Basic Curriculum.

If you are interested in taking this curriculum, please reach out to us through our Forums or Discord server.
