Ancient Celtic religion, commonly known as Celtic paganism, comprises the religious beliefs and practices adhered to by the Iron Age people of Western Europe now known as the Celts, roughly between BCE and CE, spanning the La Tène period and the Roman era, and in the case of the Insular Celts the British and Irish Iron Age.
