Celtic Theology: Humanity, World and God in Early Irish Writings
Aims to draw out some features of "local theology" as seen in some of the most famous Celtic authors and texts of the first millennium. While it aims primarily at those interested in Christianity in Celtic lands, this book also fills a longstanding gap in the history of early theology in the west.
O'Loughlin examines the theological framework within which St. Patrick presented his experiences and considers how the Celtic lands of Ireland and Wales developed a distinctive view of sin, reconciliation, and Christian law that they later exported to the rest of western Christianity
Thomas O'Loughlin is lecturer in theology at the Centre for the Study of Religion in Celtic Societies, Univeristy of Wales, Lampeter
