The Horned God

The horned god was the ancient pagan god of fertility. He was often half animal and half human. The Celts called him Vernunnus. He had the head of a stag and the body of a man.

When Christianity came to Britain the god of fertility was transformed into the Devil. His nickname 'Auld Hornie' is a link back to this older belief in the horned god.
