Miths of Irish Celts
Text by Giordano Berti

(Lo Scarabeo, Torino 1994)
The Celts is a people whose cultural richness is only just coming to be appreciated today. At the lovers of this ancient people is dedicated this story, wich narrates the mythical origins and the battles of the peoples who dominated the green Eire across the centuries: first the demonic Fomorians and the heroes Tuatha Dé Danann, followed by the belligerent Ulaid and the famous Fianna, which ended the heroical deeds of Irish Celts. The text summarise and elaborate the legends preserved in the Middle Age by christian monks who transcribed the oral traditions of the bards and druids who had been converted to christianity. Thus, a clearer picture of the oneiric world of the Celts is formed.
