Who created this document? *

The CR FAQ was created collaboratively by regulars of the Celtic Reconstructionist / Restorationist LiveJournal Community (cr_r), using a CeltiWiki database created for the project. The majority of the first-draft writing was done by Kathryn Price NicDhàna and Erynn Rowan Laurie.

Additional edits, refinements, and content were added by C. Lee Vermeers, Kym Lambert ní Dhoireann, Paul Pigman, Bob Daverin, Brenda Daverin, and Raven nic Rhóisín. The document was reviewed and commented on by the members of the cr_r community before publication, and their feedback was incorporated.

The authors would like to extend thanks to the cr_r community as a whole, and in particular to Dr. Lisa Spangenberg for her academic corrections, Thomas Leigh for language assistance, Annelise Carson for additional book reviews, and Ogambear for his humor. Special thanks to Raven nic Rhóisín for hosting and managing the CeltiWiki.
