Description
Abstract (cited)
This volume describes the religion of the Celts as portrayed in the antique literary sources. In addition to archaeological and epigraphical finds, our most important sources concerning this part of Celtic life are Greek and Latin scholarly accounts. The goal of this study is to present these passages: for better understanding, a German translation is offered next to the Greek and Latin. In addition, each of the texts, ordered chronologically, includes a detailed commentary that analyses the problematic sections, taking relevant current research into account. The volume, which begins with the earliest texts and reaches to the life-time of Caesar and includes translations and commentaries, contains 99 passages by 23 different authors.
