Celtic Fire: The Passionate Religious Vision of Ancient Britain and Ireland
Robert Van de Weyer
Doubleday, 1991 - History - 248 pages
"CELTIC FIRE is a wondrous treasure-house of tall 'true' stories of such well-known figures as Patrick, Brigid, Brendan, Columba, Cuthbert, and many others dear to my childhood and even dearer now. These tales of saints and beasts are a beautiful reminder that the animals are part of God's plan, doing heavenly work with often more grace than granted human beings."
"This little book will refresh and inspire your Celtic consciousness. Here are bright flashes from poets and mystics. Here are people who lived as creatures of a common, earthly creation. Here are readings to remind us all how simply life is meant to be lived and in living it simply how we find reflected eternal Mystery."
-Gertrud Mueller Nelson, author of HERE ALL DWELL FREE

The Gaelic language still spoken today by the shephards is a combination of the early Celtic language mixed with the necessary Latin. Early monks found that the Celtic language did not even have the words yes and no in it so Latin words had to be added to it so it could survive. Read full review
