This is a class that discusses the history, culture and religion of the Celtic people. It starts off describing exactly who the
Celtic people are and where they came from and how their features of spirituality were adapted into the Celtic Christian
Church. Then, we will discuss the rise of the ancient Celtic Christian Church and Celtic monasticism which includes
the main Celtic saints: Saint Patrick, Saint Brigid and Saint Columba of Iona. We will then describe the decline of that
church and where it stands today. Along the way we will discuss the history of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Britain, including the influence of the Roman Empire on Britain.
