Description of this Book

Aims to draw out some features of local theology as seen in some of the most famous Celtic authors and texts of the first millennium. While it aims primarily at those interested in Christianity in Celtic lands, this book also fills a longstanding gap in the history of early theology in the west.

NZ Review This is an important book. It counters the overly sentimental and unhistorical view of Celtic religious and situates Cetlic theology squarely within the institutional medieval Christian Church. <br>--Richard J. Hauser, S.J., Theological Studies, December 2001<br>
