Spanning from the earliest texts of antiquity to the vivid storytelling of the Celtic Christian period and beyond, this is an inspiring selection of poetry and prose.
While the earliest material captures the beliefs and practices of a vibrant natural religion, we see how these were later incorporated into a unique form of Christianity, one that sadly died out in the late 7th century. Other highlights include works of the Celtic Twilight. Celtic Wisdom offers a unique blend of pagan and Christian insight that is as relevant today as in ancient times.
