The Celts: History, Sociology, & Religion

ID : 82576   
« back to classes page
This course will begin with the sources about the Celts, what we know about their origins and migrations, by looking at the archeological evidence and writings of the Greeks and Romans. Following this we will discuss the roles of women, craftspeople (builders, artists, metal workers, etc.) and kings and Druids in their society. We will then begin covering their religion; myth, cosmology, gods and goddesses. The story of Arthur and how it was brought together with the Holy Grail will occupy this class. Following this, the last few weeks will be spent on the coming of Christianity and how it developed (quite differently from the rest of Europe). Particularly in Ireland, Scotland and Wales. We will use a good bit of film in this class since "a picture is worth a thousand words" and I believe it will be helpful. There is no text but I have many books that may be checked out depending on interest.
