Description: Unlike the deities of Greek and Roman mythology, Celtic gods are not patrons of love or war; nor do they have a celestial home. Gods and men live together on Irish soil in an uneasy partnership. In this concise, erudite study, a noted French scholar summarizes and analyzes the rich array of Celtic deities, discussing the gods of the continental Celts, the beginnings of mythology in Ireland, and the two main categories of Irish deities: the mother-goddesses, including warrior-goddesses, and the chieftain-gods, who also take the roles of father, warrior, magician, and craftsman. Also discussed are the qualities and deeds of heroes, who are not gods, but embody all the ideal qualities of the race. Students, scholars, and anyone interested in folklore will welcome this scholarly, yet readable, study of the heroes and gods of Celtic lore.
