The Pros and Cons of the Book The Cons 1 The book was not intended for the beginner Most of the time the author assumes you know what and who he is talking about.2 It was written at an early stage when not a lot of archeological sites were found about the Celts.3 Some of the information is a bit out dated or confusing Conclusion Don t read this as an introduction to the CelticReligion.The Pros 1 It is one of the first books that give you a mix of information about the religion as opposed to just [...]

The text was a bit dry, and I wouldn t exactly recommend it for light reading I mean, the first chapter went on and on about skull shapes Skull Shapes The author also assumes the reader knows enough about ancient history such as who lived where and what civilization conquered which, so if you don t know much about that you might have a little difficulty placing them as you read I did like the way he doesn t talk down on the Celtic religion in the way a lot of authors who wrote around that time f [...]

Originally published in 1911 MacCulloch uses various texts as a source to piece this tome on the religion of the pre Christian Celts together Overall a good work, especially when you consider this was written before most, if not all, of the major archaeological finds that gave great insight into the ancient Celts I love reading historical books that were published in the 1800 s and early 1900 s because the authors are not chained by political correctness and were often willing to think outside t [...]

I really enjoyed this book It s extremely in depth but not boring The author really knew his subject and he is cautious in his interpretations The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is due to the fact that this book is rather old 1911 and thus subject to relative lack of scholarship on the Celts But so long as one keeps in mind that we have learned much about the Celts since the publishing of this book, it s a great read

Very good for what it is, which is Ann elderly book More recent scholarship has some very different ideas, and if you re doing serious research you probably want to go elsewhere However if you find how we remember history just as intriguing as the history we remember, this book is a fun read to compare with recent works.

Kindled for free Excellent book by MacCulloch He calls himself part of the new generation of scholars, and in some ways he is right, reading him isn t nearly so frustrating as reading other early people He even manages to balance out his ancient theories with modern examples, including human sacrifice on the rivers dee and don 3 quotes Celts being Keltic p Similarly French fishermen threaten to cut a fog in two with a knife, while the legend of S Lunaire tells how he threw a knife at a fog, thus [...]

Overall I didn t care for this book Some parts were really interesting which is what kept me reading but overall I think there are probably better books on the subject out there I definitely wouldn t recommend this to a beginner on the subject as the author moves through a lot of information very quickly and seems to assume that the audience knows what he s referencing For someone who studies the topic though there might be some insightful information here He talks quite a bit about continental [...]

This book discusses the religion of the ancient celts Much is taken from a text found in the 10th century and some burial sites I think it might had been better for me to read read the legends first to really understand but I got something out of this text The cleats interacted with many cultures over the years and adopted their gods and combined with theirs Roman and Greek gods were adopted as were Vikings and Christianity later The Celts had some animals they worshiped but it died out as years [...]

While informative, it was outdated and had some misinformation The author s Christian bias was evident at times, but it didn t seem to color what he was saying too much This is not a book for someone who doesn t know anything about the ancient Gaelic, Brythonic and Gaulish people As a pagan, I think this would be useful to other pagans who want an informative text Again, however, it needs to be taken with a grain of salt Where are the informative books on the religion of ancient civilizations th [...]

An exhaustive and comprehensive overview of the Celtic religion as seen through the lens of the writers of antiquity As other reviewers have shared, the information is dated as the book is over a 100 years old However, I would still recommend for those already familiar with the subject and looking for an in depth resource.

This book has some interesting details and digressions, but overall I wanted something substantive Often it seems a catalog of ancient inscriptions the author hesitates to draw any conclusions from them That being said, it has really impressive footnotes for future research.

A bit outdated now, but still a solid study and a decent intro to the topic.

Altro libro comprato pi di una decina d anni fa e mai terminato di leggere E c un buon motivo Per quanto mi sembri completo e complesso l argomento, si tratta di un blocco di testo difficilmente digeribile L autore tratta con quello stile mattoncino anni 20 l argomento, seguono descrizioni solo per i veri interessati e io non sono tra quelli.
