Details

Thomas O'Loughlin's fresh and original introduction to Celtic spirituality begins by questioning the very notion of a distinctively 'Celtic' spirituality. Brilliantly re-examining the original sources, he argues that there s one over-arching theme giving them a unity - the idea of being 'on the edge', both culturally and geographically.Say Richard Woods OP: 'Journeys on the Edges provides a valuable antidote to the wishful thinking and misconceptions that bedevil much recent writing about the Celtic tradition. Rejecting the claim that a 'Celtic spirituality' can be constructed out of the sparse records of the first millennium, O'Loughlin incisively and eloquently explores the witness of early Christian Ireland, especially for what it reveals about spirituality today.'Thomas O'Loughlin is Reader in Historical Theology at the University of Wales, Lampeter.
