    A scholars view of the Celts

    This book, written about 1911 and reproduced many times, is an important historical and mostly complete view of the Celtic people, their culture, legends, religion, and relation to their influence on the development of western civilisation. However, this is not a book for light reading or for those with limited reading capability. It was written in the scholastic style, prevalant at the time. It is somewhat like a textbook, and was probably intended for collegiate or theological education. What makes this book important to anyone wishing to learn about the Celtic peoples, is the very accurate depiction of the myths and characters that comprise the Celtic pantheon. It not only depicts the mythology, but a very accurate depiction of the historical and cultural development of the Celts throughout Europe. It is well suited to individuals engaged in learning about pagan beliefs, or undergoing study of Celtic mystical belief systems for their spiritual development. Serious readers should not be inhibited from completion of this book, due to it's somewhat difficult and scholastic prose. If you want to learn all the necessary legends that influenced the development of modern Irish, Welsh, Scottish, and (partially) British culture, this book is an essential addition to your library. For more specific information on Celtic witchcraft, Druidic lifestyle, or current adaptations of Celtic paganism, more modern and specific texts would be needed for further study.

    a little disappointing...

    this book is a good read, but it is a hard one. i thought this book would be better than it was, but in the end it was overall a good book for anyone wanting to delve deeper into the beliefs of the Celtic people.

    Good for History Buff's

    The history of the Celts is interesting. How the celts developed through the mixing of tribes through Europe before settling on the British Isles.

    dry dry dry dry dryyyyyyyyy

    I picked it up thinking itd be like a collection of celtic fables and myths with some analysis/author input but it was the reverse. You do get your myths but its very hard to follow or enjoy. Think back to highschool text book with foriegn names that are repeated or altered five different times. If you want more of a lecture , this is your book.
