EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS WIDELY REVERED IN THE CELTIC WORLD, NOT MUCH IS KNOWN ABOUT BRIGANTIA FROM THE CYMRIC WRITTEN SOURCES, BUT WE DO KNOW THAT SHE IS CLOSELY RELATED TO BRIGID AS GODDESS OF THE LAND. HER AREAS OF CONCERN ARE PROTECTING THE TRIBE AND ENSURING PROSPERITY AND FERTILITY IN THE HOME. WHEN THE ROMANS DESCRIBE HER, SHE RESEMBLES THE GODDESS, MINERVA WHO PERFORMED A SIMILAR ROLE IN ROMAN WORSHIP. THE BRIGANTES WERE A POWERFUL GROUP OF TRIBES WHO MANAGED TO HOLD OFF THE ROMANS FOR YEARS...SO IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT THEIR GODDESS APPEAR AS A FIGURE OF STRENGTH.
