Short overview of four twelfth century cycles of traditional myths and legends, with a list of chief and minor tales.
Celtic Mythology
The Mythological Cycles
Ancient Irish history and legends have come down to us through history thanks to the diligent chronicling of the early Christian monks. The best record of the rich Celtic mythological tradition is contained in the four cycles drawn up by twelfth century Christian scribes: the Mythological Cycle , the Ulster Cycle (also known as the Red Branch Cycle) and the Fenian or Fianna Cycle , and the Kings, or Historical Cycle. Irish myths were probably recorded in the eighth century or earlier, possibly written by the Druids in Ogham . There are few surviving examples of Ogham because this writing was primarily done on bark, or or wands of hazel and aspen. However the legends of the early Celtic people were also passed down through the tradition of storytelling, and it was from this source that the Monks gathered their colorful tales. The early medieval monks rewrote the oral stories in a style that was designed to be read aloud to noble or royal households. When they set themselves the task of constructing a pseudo-history of Ireland, they also recast the ancient myths and legends into a Christian mold. In doing so, they demoted the old gods to mortals, and rewrote the sagas into an almost indecipherable maze of conflicting events.

Celtic Mythology
Introduction What we know about Celtic Mythology is largely gleaned from the books and manuscripts of medieval Ireland and Wales. These literary sources can be supplemented by the iconographic and archeological record from the pre-Christian Iron Age Celtic world itself, alongside external observations about the Celtic peoples and their druidic religion by contemporary witnesses such as Posidonious, Plutarch and Julius Caesar. From these diverse sources we can develop a fascinating picture of a magico-religious system which in some ways parallels practices and beliefs evident from elsewhere in the Indo-European world in the last millenium before Christ. In other respects however, it is also possible to discern within this tradition an unusually sophisticated aesthetic and metaphysical conception which possibly owes something to the more indigenous elements of the prehistoric West - including the megalithic cultures of the Late Stone Age and Early Bronze Age background (3500 -1500 BC). The Celtic mythological universe is essentially animistic , in which the tutelary goddess , representing the life and fertility of the kingdom occupied a significant position. The

Ancient Echoes:
Transformations of Celtic Mythology in Arthurian Legend
Arthurian legend is the mixture of countless individuals over some 1500 years. The myth may have a basis in fact; it is certainly possible that an historical King Arthur did indeed exist in the sixth century A.D., a war leader defending post-Roman Britain from the invading Saxons. It is also possible such a figure did not. The question is almost irrelevant, however; whatever the legend's origins, the tale of King Arthur has been used for centuries as a symbol and a vehicle for numerous cultures. Any existing historicity has been obscured through accretion of other mythic material and by authors using the popular and powerful story for their own rhetorical purposes. Thus, the Arthurian legend is an amalgamation of many different creative impulses. One of the richest and most significant of these influences, constituting much of the original source material for the "modern" Arthurian legend, comes from the half-remembered tales of an enigmatic people called the Celts.
The Grail Quest
The early Christian Church had a penchant for taking the established folklore of a society and assimilating it into a new Christian dogma, painting over the old pagan character in broad strokes. If one looks for it, however, the origins of Medieval Christian stories can by located fairly easily. The 13th-century French writer Chretien de Troyes first introduced the Grail Quest in the form in which we know it today: the story of how virtuous Christian knights such as Percival and Galahad set forth to find the Holy Grail, the chalice used by Jesus Christ at the Last Supper. It was further hallowed by catching a few drops of the Son of Man's blood during his crucifixion, and later brought to England (as luck would have it) by Joseph of Arimathea. In the medieval romance, only Galahad, the purest and best of the knights, possessed the grace to actually achieve the Grail. However, this sublime Christian myth has much older roots amid the ancient Celtic tradition.

BEL Bel (Belenos) was the Celtic god of light.
God of light, The Shining One, associated with Apollo. married to Belisama. Belenus was the most widely worshipped Celtic God. Belenus is in charge of welfare of sheep and cattle. Corresponds with Irish God Bile. The Feast of Beltane means 'Fire of Bel'.

In Gaelic mythology, Brighid was the goddess of metalwork, poetic inspiration and therapy. BROWNIE The brownie is a spirit popular in Scottish folk-lore. Brownies haunt houses, and if treated well will help with the drudgery of the housework while the occupants sleep. CERNUNNOS "The Horned One" is a Celtic god of fertility, life, animals, wealth, and the underworld. He was worshipped all over Gaul, and his cult spread into Britain as well. Cernunnos is depicted with the antlers of a stag, sometimes carries a purse filled with coin. The Horned God is born at the winter solstice, marries the Goddess at Beltane, and dies at the summer solstice. He alternates with the Goddess of the moon in ruling over life and death, continuing the cycle of death, rebirth and reincarnation. Paleolithic cave paintings found in France that depict a stag standing upright or a man dressed in stag costume seem to indicate that Cernunnos' origins date to those times. Romans sometimes portrayed him with three cranes flying above his head.

Animal Symbolism in Celtic Mythology
A paper for Religion 375 at the University of Michigan
by Lars Noodén, 22 November 1992 Animals in Celtic and Welsh mythology are tied in with fertility and vitality, because they are living, moving, and growing. They also provide vitality and continued life for the tribes through their meat, skins, and bones. In addition, they are a connection to the realm of spirits and the gods. This connection is seen through their use in the hunt, search for secrets and wisdom. Specific animals have specific associations depending on the characteristics of the type of animal. Birds, fish, serpents, deer, cattle, swine, and so on all tend to be used as symbols. Boars fishes serpents birds , and herd animals are the most frequently described. In addition to representing fertility and wealth, boars symbolize courage and strong warriors MacCulloch , 356) for they are strong, dangerous, and very hard to kill. Their appearance in dreams and visions also indicates warriors. Isolt's forewarning of the death of Tristan, a great warrior, came in a dream about the death of a great boar

them all. Finn was a true leader of his people, a poet and magician,the pinnacle of achievement for a Celtic warrior. Finn s father

Cuchulainn was an ancient Gaelic hero who was endowed with superhuman qualities. His name means 'The Hound of Culainn', but he was first called Setanta. His parents were Dechtire and Lugh Lamhfhada (Lugh of the Long Hand / Pronounce "Loo Lawvodda"). At the age of five he left home to join the Red Branch Knights, the Ulster army of the king Conor Mac Nessa. With him he took his hurley, his silver ball, his javelin and his spear. He would hit the silver ball with the hurley, leap forward and hit it a second time before it touched the ground, toss the javelin ahead and then the spear, run after them all, catch the ball and javelin with one hand and the spear with the other. When he reached the palace at Emain Macha (Armagh), he beat 150 boys at hurling and other games. Cuchulainn achieved his name at the age of seven when he killed the watch dog of Ulster belonging to Culainn', the smith and in return undertook to protect the kingdom of Ulster and its people himself. The Queen learnt of a great Brown Bull in Cooley, County Louth. The chieftan of Louth refused to let Maeve have his bull, so she resolved to get it by force. Secretly she promised her beautiful daughter in marriage to every leader in her army and so secured the help of every warrior outside Ulster. The army marched to Kells, on the Ulster border and pitched camp. Maeve sought an interview with the Ulsterman and, amazed to find him a mere boy, offered him gold and great rewards if he would desist. Cuchulainn refused, but Maeve secured his agreement to fight one of her heroes each day at the ford that lay between, reckoning that this was better than losing one hundred every night to Cuchulainn's sling. Day after day Cuchulainn fought Maeve's warriors,overcoming Morrigu, the water goddess, during his fight with the hero Loich who he still managed to wound mortally.

celtic mythology
Known as the Keltoi to the Greeks, and the Galli to the Romans, the peoples north of the Alps were of little initial interest in the ancient world. Then in the fourth century BC the great Celtic migrations from Central Europe pushed out in earnest, and overran the illustrious ancient civilisations on the mediterranean. In 390 BC the Celts became the only ancient civiliation to ever capture Rome; a century later they sacked prestigious Delphi of the Greeks. The Celts had arrived in the history books. Unfortunately, there is little we can guage of their history from their own perspective, but we have many clues, through the historical sources and especially archaeological excavations. For a start, the Celts were a mixture of over 40 tribes who generally shared customs and beliefs, who pushed from central Europe and north into Britain, west into Spain, south into Turkey, but came up against the ever more closely migrating Germanic peoples in the West. Eventually Celtica became trapped in the vice of Roman imperialism and Germanic expansion, and gave way to one and then the other over time. The Celtic peoples became absorbed, first by Rome, then by the Germans. But it was the literate Christian monks who followed again from Rome, after the Germanic conquests, who eventually began to take enough of an interest in recording local ideas. And so in the last quarters of the remaining Celtic languages, and over the following centuries, some small part of their rich tradition was finally put into writing.

15. Deanna's World: Celtic Whispers
Offers a guide to pronouncing Celtic words, as well as a brief description of the main characters in celtic mythology.
The history of the Celts began before information or written records were kept. In what is now Eastern Europe, the Celts seem to have moved west into Austria, Switzerland, France, and modern Germany. During the beginning of the Classical period, which took place about 500 BC, many groups spread over a wide area of Europe, from Scotland to Ireland, and to the southern Mediterranean. They were equipped with both iron weapons and a variety of ornamental arts, which were important to their culture and legacy.
By the time that their existence was recorded, the Celts were so numerous that writers named them as one of the four great barbarian peoples in the world. Their union was not that of a nation, but it was more cultural in nature. While they did have kingslike chiefs, or druids, they still had no apparent authority. And although each tribe had its own identity, they were still similar in language, religion, and lifestyle. Celtic language, as defined by the dictionary, is a group of Indo-European languages usually subdivided into Brythonic and Goidelic and now largely confined to Brittany, Wales, western Ireland, and the Scottish Highlands.

In the 4th century BCE their influence and territories covered the length of Europe, stretching from Britain to Asia Minor. Celtic mythology consists of three groups:
  • The Goidelic, including Ireland, the Isle of Man, and the western highlands of Scotland. In language, race, and tradition these form a homogenous block; The Insular Brythonic, including Wales and Cornwall, also inhabited by kindred people with a somewhat similar history; The Continental Brythonic, that is, Brittany. Though racially akin to the Welsh and Cornish, the Bretons have had a very differently history and enjoy a distinct culture.

    Bibliography The bulk of what is known of Celtic mythology comes to us primarily from fragmentary texts transcribed, for the most part, between the twelfth and fifteenth centuries. These volumes, having been set to parchment and vellum after the advent of Christianity, contain transcriptions of much older legends and heroic tales, albeit subject to the influence of the times. The most auspicious of these is the "Book of the Dun Cow", which, tradition has it, was copied from a seventh century manuscript written upon the hide of Saint Ciaran's favorite pet. Some folk tales survive to this day in rural Celtic towns and villages being kept alive by storytellers and singers who carry on the ancient oral tradition. ONSITE

Conclusion Introduction The year is 57 A.D. and your Celtic tribe has been pushed into Ireland by invading Roman forces! You fear that your people will be annihilated by the powerful enemy army. In order to save your culture, you are placing oral history and religion into written form. Luckily, your tribe is a well-educated lot: your group is comprised by a scholar, artisan, cleric, and sociologist. Together you must formulate a traditional tale based on a Celtic hero-story of your own design that is characteristic of your culture and art, before the Roman forces invade your tribe! Immortality is within your grasp . . . if only your tale can be transcribed into written text!!! Back to Top The Task Your first task is to become familiar with some traditional Celtic myths! As a group you should read the two Celtic myths which are linked in the resource section. Each group member must then choose two additional myths to read on their own. Eventually your group will be creating their own Celtic myth. Each group member will research one of the various positions and come up with the following crucial information for the completion of the project: The Scholar
