  • Cantabrian Mythology
    Cantabrian mythology is the collection of myths, teachings, and legends belonging to the Cantabri, a people living in the far north of Spain, adjacent to the Basque area. Celtic cults were partially absorbed and adapted into Roman mythology, blending with legends and traditions from the Cantabrian Mountains. In many instances, the dilution of details through oral tradition or the selectivity that Roman historians exercised in recording only cults and divinities that were similar to theirs attributed to the loss of original meanings behind traditions. This Romanization, and later the ascendancy of Christendom transformed the pagan rites, achieving religious syncretism, and amalgamating the various belief systems.
