Popis The article analyses the phenomenon of Celtophilia within the framework of Czech identity and history. It deals with two main issues: (1) the historical development of Czech Celtophilia, in its both non-religious and religious forms, and (2) the dynamics of its present-day decline. Though the reasons for Czech enthusiasm for Celtic history and identity, as well as skepticism about Czech Celticity, were always diverse and variable, the purpose of the article is to present a general explanation of these issues and their contributing factors.
