Celtic Christianity: The Story of a People, a Culture, and a Spiritual Tradition
Much of what has been written about Celtic spirituality has been over-romanticized. The fact is that these were tough people living in a tough time. And yet they have given the church a gift rooted in particular circumstances and a particular history. We will explore the pre-Christian landscape of what is now Ireland, Scotland, and Wales; present some conflicting theories about the origin of who we now call “the Celts”; examine the art of illuminated manuscripts; have a look at the monastic and missionary life; revel in the poetry of the Celtic love of nature; and appraise the continuing value of this tradition in the contemporary church and in the practice of prayer and Christian living.
