Few surviving Celtic myths bear any resemblance to their originals. In the course of time they have been infused with romance, pseudo-history and Christian theory. Stories of Ireland and Wales have been combined with tales of love, war and slaughter -- deeds both noble and ignoble. In this classic study, MacCulloch proves that Celtic legend borrowed from pre-Celtic mythology, just as Christianity in Britain subsumed much of the Celtic past.
