Celtic is the mythology of Celtic polytheism , the religion of the Iron Age Celts. For Celts in close contact with Ancient Rome , such as the Gauls and Celtiberians , their mythology did not survive the Roman Empire , their subsequent conversion to Christianity and the loss of their Celtic languages. It is mostly through contemporary Roman and Christian sources that their mythology has been preserved. The Celtic peoples who maintained either political or linguistic identities such as the Gaels in Ireland and Scotland , the Welsh in Wales , and the Celtic Britons of southern Great Britain and Brittany left vestigial remnants of their ancestral mythologies that were put into written form during the Middle Ages.

Inscriptions of more than three hundred deities, often equated with their Roman counterparts, have survived, but of these most appear to have been genii locorum , local or tribal gods, and few were widely worshiped.

Она замерла, стараясь успокоиться и чувствуя, как растущая паника сковывает ее тело. Душераздирающий крик, раздавшийся из вентиляционной шахты, все еще звучал в ее ушах.
