Special Topic for Winter Semester 2021: Celtic Myth and Religion
A survey of the mythological and religious systems of Celtic-speaking peoples based on a variety of sources, including medieval Irish and Welsh literature, comparative linguistics, the writings of Classical authors, and archaeological evidence for religious beliefs and practices. We will consider the problems inherent in identifying and reconstructing any form of unified “Celtic” mythology, religion, or cultural identity based on the separate evidence of the Continental Celts and the Celtic-speaking peoples of Ireland and Britain. Topics will include: “Celtic” divinities, the role of archaeology and folklore in understanding myth and religion, sacred kingship and sacred landscape, varying beliefs about the afterlife and the Otherworld, hero tales, and the development of modern Celtic identities, religious movements, and nationalisms.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The method of evaluation will be a final exam, which will be written at home and submitted online via Moodle. Students will be provided with a list of questions and will be asked to choose 4 to respond to. Each question will be worth 25 points.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Course objectives include:

Familiarity with the major sources of information about Celtic myth and religion, particularly from the Celtic speaking peoples of the ancient and medieval periods.

Understanding of problems attached to treating Celtic culture, and particularly myth and religion, as a unified system across geographical and temporal divisions.

Knowledge of core concepts, world-view, and means of transmission of evidence for Celtic myth and religion.

The exam questions will give students the opportunity to engage with these issues.
