The current fascination with Celtic Christianity is the latest manifestation of a lingering love affair stretching back over the last 1300 years. This book explores how the native Christian communities of the British Isles from the fifth to the tenth centuries have been idealized and appropriated by a succeeding generation who have projected their own preconceptions and prejudices onto a perceived "golden age" of Celtic Christianity. It provides a fascinating study of the chasing of dreams and the making of myths.
