The Religion of the Ancient Celts
Incidental proofs of the fondness of the Celts for images are
found in ecclesiastical writings and in late survivals. The
procession of the image of Berecynthia has already been described,
and such processions were common in Gaul, and imply a regular
folk-custom. S. Martin of Tours stopped a funeral procession
believing it to be such a pagan rite.
