Ancient Mythology

Taranis | Celtic Mythology

Taranis was a Celtic god worshiped in the Iberian penninsula by the Gallaeci, and possibly the earlier Celtiberians, as well as by the Gauls. The later Gauls worshipped a similar diety, Ambisagrus

Taranis’ name and attributes are likely related to those of Thor, the Norse thunder god. Some Roman sources associate Taranis with the Roman war god, Mars.

In Ireland, the myth of Tranis is carried on through the Irish god Tuireann.
