Too Many Opinions not enough facts

As there are too many opinions and not enough facts I am keeping the hub brief. I do not writing opinions when it comes to religion as I feel that we were given freewill and part of that is the right to chose the religion that works best for us without the biased opinions others affecting our individual choices.

Celtic Religion

What is the Celtic Religion? The Celtic religion seems complex due to the fact that most of the history is observations made from non-followers of the Celtic Religion. All of the research points towards the belief that every part of the earth (all the natural things, rocks, trees, etc.) have a spirit. The Celts also believed in polytheism (meaning multiple Gods) their Gods were both male and female although according to historical records their Gods did not have any imagery until the Romano-Celtic Era.


Some believe that the Celtic religion was formed during the prehistoric era and others believe that it was formed in 12,000 BC. The Aryan Celtic language has Latin roots. It is thought the Aryan people who conquered the Celtic region brought with them their spiritual beliefs that the Celtic people adopted. It is also a believe that the Celtic people adopted forms of Roman Gods and Goddess giving them Celtic surnames.

"Celtic religion, religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Celts.

The Celts, an ancient Indo-European people, reached the apogee of their influence and territorial expansion during the 4th century bc, extending across the length of Europe from Britain to Asia Minor. From the 3rd century bc onward their history is one of decline and disintegration, and with Julius Caesar’s conquest of Gaul (58–51 bc) Celtic independence came to an end on the European continent. In Britain and Ireland this decline moved more slowly, but traditional culture was gradually eroded through the pressures of political subjugation;..." From the Britannica Online Encyclopedia.

There are still people practicing the Celtic religion today. Often times the followers of Wicca also will study the Celtic religion. The Celtic religion is mysterious and it seems that it shall remain that way or at least for awhile.

      Thank you. Some religions are harder than others as some of the older religions were only passed down through generations by the priest and they weren't written down. It makes for a challenge.
