S 85 Celtic Spirituality: Rhythm, Roots and Relationships


There is something peculiarly attractive about the Christianity of the early Celtic-speaking peoples. In a world that is drained and fragmented by materialism and rationalism, Celtic Christianity offers the hope of a natural and holistic faith.

Drawing on a wide range of resources and with questions for personal reflection, this overview offers a warm invitation to explore the riches of the Celtic tradition. Links to further resources can be found on the supporting web page accessible below.
