About the Author:

Oliver Davies is Professor of Christian Doctrine at King's College London.

From Library Journal:

In a brief introduction, Davies and Bowie (Univ. of Wales) trace the backgrounds of Celtic Christianity, which stemmed from a pre-Christian vital religion affecting every aspect of life and emphasized locality, landscape, and oral tradition while prizing poetry, mythology, and imagery. The authors see the Celtic religion as nature-affirming and optimistic and the Christianity that developed in Britain and Ireland as connected to the undivided Church yet isolated from current trends. The authors' selections from medieval religious poetry and prose, including poems recorded from oral tradition, support their view. The anthology concludes with poems written by nine modern poets (e.g., Euros Bowen, W.R. Rogers), who reveal aspects of this heritage. Recommended for academic, seminary, and large public libraries.
