Celtic Christianity and the First Christian Kings in Britain
From Saint Patrick and St. Columba, to King Ethelbert and King Alfred by Paul Backholer

Celtic Christianity is as exciting as it is intriguing, from the first native Christians in the British Isles, through to the great saints such as Patrick and Columba; coupled with the trials and triumphs of the historic Anglo-Saxon kings.

For centuries, this unique and isolated expression of Christianity thrived in Britain and Ireland. Together Celtic Christians ignited a Celtic Golden Age of faith and light which spread into Europe. Discover this striking history, how a nation dedicated to God was born and what we can learn from the heroes of Celtic Christianity.
