IN01 Celtic Awakening
The Celtic Saints mission to bring Christianity to the people of Britain and Ireland incorporated and celebrated with
passion much of the spirituality of the pagan tradition. This included the ‘baptising’ of holy wells, the belief in the
afterlife, and the emphasis on humanity’s oneness with
nature. The conversion came from a genuine change of
religious perceptions, rather than a brutal clash of faiths and cultures. This is expressed in the form of the Celtic cross, which evolved from the ancient symbol of the divine sun wheel.
