The Forgotten Faith: The Witness of the Celtic Saints
This book examines the lives of the Celtic saints and the sacred places in the landscape that have become associated with them. The Celtic saints were intuitives whose feet were very firmly planted on the ground. It is their equilibrium as human beings that gives much of their appeal, and this book traces the known history of these individuals and the society they lived in.
