Fellowship of Isis History

            The Fellowship of Isis was founded at the Spring Equinox of 1976 at Clonegal Castle in Ireland, by Olivia Robertson, her brother Lawrence, and his wife, Pamela Durdin-Robertson. The following was uploaded as a tribute to mark its 30th anniversary, and includes various documents, booklets, manuals and photos from the early years, many provided by Olivia Robertson to be included in this section. We warmly thank her and all the members who have participated. We also invite anyone who wishes to share something to please contact us. We hope you enjoy learning more about some of the history behind the Fellowship of Isis.

This first broadcast in January of 1976 and is a bit “sensationalized” to appeal to the masses, but a wonderful look at Olivia and Lawrence Durdin-Robertson just before they founded the Fellowship of Isis in March of that same year. (offsite link - shared with permission from RTE) View Video
