in Pre-Christian Times. Release Date: March 23, 2006. In dealing with the subject of ‘Celtic Religion’ the first duty of the writer is to explain the sense in which the term ‘Celtic’ will be used in this work. It will be used in reference to those countries and districts which, in historic times, have been at one time or other mainly of Celtic speech. It does not follow that all the races which spoke a form of the Celtic tongue, a tongue of the Indo-European family, were all of the same stock.

It is only as prehistoric archaeology has come to throw more and more light on the early civilisations of Celtic lands that it has become possible to interpret Celtic religion from a thoroughly modern viewpoint. The author cordially acknowledges his indebtedness to numerous writers on this subject, but his researches into some portions of the field especially have suggested to him the possibility of giving a new presentation to certain facts and groups of facts, which the existing evidence disclosed. [Transcribed from the 1906 Archibald Constable & Co. Ltd. edition.]

Admittedly, I had thought this was going to delve far more into Irish religion, but was faintly aware that Celtic has meant about 20 different things throughout history.

Getting over this initial, self-inflicted disappointment though, I was thoroughly impressed with the contents of the book. It gives additional perspective to the roles of "druids" within pre-Christian Europe, that books as Caesar's Gallic Wars allude to.

All in all, this book has hooked me into Tarl's works. I was already a big fan of his video content, and although I'll never really get behind the Occult focused books, I'll definitely start reading through those focused on history and older theology.

Keep up the good work, Styx.

This book is an interesting insight into Pre-Christian Celtic religion. By gaining knowledge into how and why the people lived and understood their world, the reader also gains perspective as to how they later developed their views on Christianity. A fascinating (especially if you are interested in Celtic culture) read!
  • Morlunn
It doesn't go into great depth, but it doesn't pretend to know more than it does. It's a short and simple review of what was known about Celtic religion at the time of its writing, and therefore awesome.
  • Roru
Great review of the religious beliefs prior to the invasion of the Catholic Church
  • Cala
A little dated, but an excellent short overview of religion among the ancient Celts. It is scholarly yet very entertaining.
  • Cae
I gave this book a low rating because it was boring and antiquated. I felt like there just wasn't much information.
  • Gholbirdred
I could feel the spoon clinks/clanks on every page.
Not too academic for casual readers, but intellectually satisfying for the more discriminating and knowledgeable reader. A very nice survey with plenty of references for further investigation. I highly recommend it!
