Deities of the Celtic peoples, ruling over both human actions and the natural world
The Celtic gods and goddesses are a vast group of deities who were worshipped by the ancient Celtic tribes. Their names and attributes varied between languages and locations, with some deities worshipped by all tribes while others were specific to a particular region or people.

The ancient Celtic texts which give the most insight into their mythology and folklore are largely transcriptions of oral histories dating from the middle ages. These manuscripts include the Ulster Cycle, the Mythological Cycle, the Fenian Cycle, and the Cycle of the Kings.
