    Picked up a very old, dog eared, spine broken copy of this at a used book store the week before Christmas I had never heard of this book, or Ross, and was very happy to find this book I picked it up immediately and bought it for a couple of bucks I am enjoying it immensely and learning a lot I had no idea the Celts equal the Gauls and the Galatians as well I was worried that the book s scholarship was out of date, but I ve done some additional research and it looks like the scholarship has held up over the years At least as far as I ve gotten, which is about 50 pages into it.WHY does GoodReads not have a status for I will never finish reading this book We all have those books that we KNOW we will NEVER finish, right Well, anyway, I will never finish this book It was interesting, especially the information noted above about the Galations Gauls Celts And I found the archaeological record showing religious sites being located close to wells and water springs In _Listening to the Heartbeat of God_, Rev J Philip Newell noted this continuity between pagan Celtic religios rites and Celtic Christian beliefs.

    Used this for my bachelor thesis I decided to put it on my read list, even if I mainly focused on chapters 1 3 5 and sort of only looked through the other chapters It was really good and very useful Ross is extremely thorough, always arguing her case with lots of examples Great book about the scarce knowledge we have of the Celtic religion.

    A very interesting read.

    Published in 1967 and revised in 1992, the book is out of date, but there is much information I have not seen in recent works, especially on animal associations in paganism, so still worth a read for those interested.

    At 51 years old, this book is just a bit outdated when it comes to some of the conclusions drawn However, the exhaustive catalog of sculpture, statuary and other archaeological finds, married with the literary research, keeps this on the To Read pile for anyone interested in the Celts.
