Honouring the gods in the classical Mediterranean realm and on its fringes


The Gaulish religion is today seen as a major component in the social and architectural fabric of the Second Iron Age. The vast scattering of remains unearthed on an arc spanning Ribemont-sur-Ancre, le Cailar (Gard), Corent in Auvergne and the site of Mormont (canton of Vaud, Switzerland) have considerably narrowed the gap between proto-historic and Mediterranean cultures as well as between Southern and Northern Gaulish peoples. Sanctuaries and monumental trophies bear out a process of ideological convergence already ongoing before the Roman conquest. Convergence also exists in cult practices which are not fundamentally different from those conducted in Italy or in Greece.
