Wondering what the Cernunnos myth is? We’ve got you covered, read on!
Cernunnos was a horned god who ruled over wild lands and creatures. He was a mysterious Gaelic deity whose name is currently used to refer to a number of nameless Celtic horned deities.
Cernunnos is a Gaelic word that means “horned” or “horned one.” The name has a common etymology with several Celtic words, as well as some Gallo-Roman cognates. In Indo-European languages, the word cern for “horned” was prevalent.
Cernunnos was a wild god who ruled over untamed nature and primitive traditions. His subjects were animals, and his gift was free-growing fruits and vegetables. Animals including as deer, wolves, snakes, and aurochs were shown in classical images of the god.
Cernunnos’ ability to bring natural foes into peaceful communion with one another made such gatherings feasible. Cernunnos may have gained a reputation as a protector and provider among rural tribes and hunters as a result of this capacity.
We can only wait and see what this movie will bring to us and incorporate the Celtic myth.
