The Celts have often been heralded as the saviours of the Western world for the writings, traditions and practices they preserved and maintained during the collapse of the Roman Empire. Today they still inspire through contemplative "Celtic" Christianity as well as through the revival of pagan traditions. There are roughly 3,000,000 speakers of Celtic languages across three primary nation-states in Western Europe.
