Household Theology

Tegoslougos Carnoboudâ theology is Immanent Polytheism.

 

Polytheism – ‘Poly’ would mean many and ‘Theism’ would come from ‘theos’ or ‘theoi’ which means god, combined to create a word that means ‘many gods’. It implies the belief and at times worship of more than two gods. 

Immanence – The idea that the divine encompasses or is manifested in the material word.  

Immanent Polytheism – The belief and worship of many gods that manifest themselves in all visible phenomena in the material world. 

An example of how this works comes from Seneca The Younger [1] who commented on the difference between Roman and Etruscan religion:

“Whereas we believe lightning to be released as a result of the collision of clouds, they believe that the clouds collide so as to release lightning: for as they attribute all to deity, they are led to believe not that things have a meaning insofar as they occur, but rather that they occur because they must have a meaning.”

The divine acts on in the world tirelessly but could be persuaded to intercede on the behalf of humankind. 

 

Disclaimer: This is not necessarily how the Continental Celtic worldview was. This is personal/household theology of Carnoboudâ.
