Just as the Galatians of Asia Minor clung to much of their cultural identity after the establishment of the Roman province of Galatia, the Celtic tribes of Gaul preserved many features of their native cultural heritage after the Roman conquest. From the blend of indigenous and foreign traditions, there emerged an independent Gallo-Roman culture which would endure for close to half a millennium, stretching from the Pyrenees to the Rhine and from the Atlantic to the Alps. This chapter discusses the history of the provinces of Gaul, Celtic texts from Roman Gaul, and aspects of Gallo-Roman religion.
