Segomâros Widugeni is one of the best known figures in Gaulish Polytheism, having been practicing for almost two decades, and in other related communities for more than 30 years. He is a co-moderator of the Gaulish Polytheism Community on Facebook, as well. He has been active in the Celtic Reconstructionist group Imbas, and the Druid group, Ár ndraíocht féin.

Segomâros is also the author, under the pseudonym Aedh Rua of the book Celtic Flame, on Irish Polytheism. He holds two Master´s Degrees, one in 20th Century German History and the other in Library Science. He speaks two Celtic languages, one of them very rusty. Segomâros lives with his wife in the woods of rural Central Florida.

Ancient Fires is a seminal text by one of the foremost figures in Gaulish Polytheism today. The book is one of the most complete attempts to explore Gaulish devotion practices and extends effectively our current understanding of the spiritual underpinnings of the Gaulish polytheistic revival movement. The book explores not only the hearth culture prevalent in Gaul but also introduces the reader to Gaulish deities and modern devotional practice.

The discerning reader is going to want to ask what the sources are for any religious tradition, how we know where we got it. This text answers such questions and moves beyond them to include personal experiences, gnosis and scholarly exploration that are seminal in modern Druid traditions. The book is comprehensive in its introduction of Dêwoi and the Gaulish weltanschauung as well as its social structure or Wlatis Toutâc. However, it is thoroughly accessible to the modern reader interested in reconnecting to the spiritual traditions of the Gaulish past. The text offers extensive resources to the reader from a pivotal scholar in the reconstruction movement.
