The Gods are often seen, in a CR context, as being Ancestors though there is often a distinction made between them and the mortal ancestors of Men, they both rate as such. Much in the same way as the Gods are also related to the Fair Folk/ Aes Sidhe/ what have you. They can fulfill multiple roles and functions as well as having their own predominant one, and place in cosmology.

I have a question on this I understand the Patron/Matron/Guardian type role. But you do not believe in archetypes correct? A deity is a Deity or ancestor but not an archetype in other words?


I have been trying to wrap and unwrap my head around that one for a little bit now.

The only thing I would add is that archetype as Tomas is describing it differs from that of common neo-pagan concepts of Gods as symbols or archetypes, as CR's (or at least the ones I have met) believe the Gods to be very real beings as you and I are real.

Thanks, that is what I had thought. That's where I always got hung up on before. Because, and this is just me, it was difficult for me to just look at a a Deity as simply a symbol. And I'd go around and around in my own self made debate. LOL

Which would be based on both UPG and taking on the pre-Christian Celtic world view.
