Celtic Christianity by Ian Bradley
Book DescriptionThe current fascination with Celtic Christianity is the latest manifestation of a lingering love affair stretching back over the last 1300 years. This book explores how the native Christian communities of the British Isles from the fifth to the tenth centuries have been idealised and appropriated by succeeding generations who have projected their own preconceptions and prejudices on to a perceived 'golden age' of Celtic Christianity. It provides a fascinating study of the making of myths and the chasing of dreams. Key Features * First ever comprehensive and chronological survey of the development of the concept of 'Celtic Christianity' * Important new insights into the religious, cultural and intellectual history of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England * Rich collection of sources with illustrations throughout the text
