Bricta is a Celtic goddess worshipped in Gaul and (as Brixta) in Britain; her presence at a healing temple and the many votive offerings left to her there appear to indicate a healing aspect.
She was accompanied by Luxovius at the hot mineral springs of Luxeuil in France.
Bricta may be related linguistically to the Irish goddess Brigid.
Bricta received votive and dedicatory offerings from her worshippers; otherwise little is known of the specifics of her cult.
Bricta’s name may have been derived from the Indo-European *bhrek or “to shine”; alternatively it may have come from the Proto-Celtic brixto or “magic.”
Bricta is known from inscriptions at a healing spa in Luxeuil, France; she was honored as Brixta in Blackmoorgate, England.
