Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie (ZCP) is an academic journal of Celtic studies, which was founded in 1896 by the German scholars Kuno Meyer and Ludwig Christian Stern and first appeared in 1897.[1] It is the first journal devoted exclusively to Celtic languages and literature and the oldest significant journal of Celtic studies still in existence today.[1] The emphasis is on (Early) Irish language and literature and Continental Celtic, but other aspects of Celtic philology and literature (including modern literature) also receive attention.[1]

Apart from Stern and Meyer, previous editors include Julius Pokorny, Ludwig Mühlhausen, Rudolf Thurneysen, Rudolf Hertz, Heinrich Wagner, Hans Hartmann and Karl Horst Schmidt.[2] The editorial staff currently consists of Stefan Zimmer, Jürgen Uhlich and Gisbert Hemprich.[3]

In addition to the regular volumes, the journal also has a subsidiary series, Buchreihe der Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie.[1]

The journal features in a poem by Flann O'Brien which satirises scholars who "rose in their nightshift / To write for the Zeitschrift".[4]
