The Celts

Bernhard Maier

Edinburgh University Press

The modern history of the Celts begins with the gradual incorporation of the Celtic-speaking regions of western Europe into the orbit of the expanding English and French monarchies. The loss of political independence was accompanied by the disappearance of independent legal and social systems, and consequently the history of the Celts since the sixteenth century is above all a history of the Celtic languages and literatures, and of the rediscovery of their medieval predecessors and the Celtic culture of antiquity. This chapter discusses Ireland in the early modern period, Irish literature in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and the Gaelic heritage.

Keywords:   Celts, Celtic culture, Irish literature, English monarchy, French monarchy
