Celtic History and Mythology


Welcome to the Celtic Art, History and Mythology section of Celtic-WeddingRings.com! Below are some samples of the Irish folklore that has served to be so inspirational to generation after generation of Irish scholars.

The Celts have left us a remarkable history. Occupying most of present day Eastern Europe, Greece, Spain, Northern Italy, Western Europe, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland, the vast lands occupied by the Celtic people were witness to their ways for over 25 centuries.

A mystic race whose customs and literature were preserved through oral tradition, Celts are remembered as warriors renowned for their fighting prowess, and whose courage inspired exceptional artistic and poetic work for centuries.

Celtic Art History

The importance of gods and magical creatures is reflected in the imaginative Celtic artworks and in Celtic Art History. Celtic Art, distinct and beautiful, has inspired many unique designs and works including one of our most popular ranges, the Celtic Warrior Collection (inspired by the uniquely remarkable Ardagh Chalice).

Celtic art holds a significant part in history. Though hardly any written references and documents remain, Celtic art has inspired many notable and distinctive designs and works throughout history. The significance and history of Celtic knots has, for example, provided one of the most important and unique design elements related to Celtic artworks.

History of the Celtic Cross

With equal armed crosses enclosed or backed by a circle, the Celtic Cross is as popular today as it was important during the era of the Celts. The circle behind the cross has been connected to everything from sun worship and symbolism of the sun, to the eternal interrelated nature of everything in the universe. The significance of the delicate details and history of Celtic knots is an extension of this perception of the infinite nature and unification of everything that forms a part of the circle of life.
