Celtic Wisdom: The Poetry and Prose of a Mystic Tradition (Sacred Wisdom)

Celtic Wisdom: The Poetry and Prose of a Mystic Tradition (Sacred Wisdom) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This carefully researched anthology of the timeless wisdom found in Celtic writings and traditions will bring new life to forgotten beliefs and foster a fresh understanding of modern Christianity. It is a special feature of Celtic Christianity that some of the basic principles, and many of the practices of the old nature religion, were assimilated and allowed to continue unabated, finding expression in a unique form of Christianity that has since sadly disappeared. The texts presented here are taken from a wide spectrum of sources—from pre-Christian material transmitted by oral folk traditions and recorded later, through the wisdom and the philosophies of the latter period. This beautifully presented history is sure to inform and fascinate.
