The latest from Paulist Press's extraordinary series on world spiritual traditions and classics--one that has brought great theologians and mystics to the attention of scholars and general readers alike, this generous volume includes writings by and about saints Patrick, Brigit, and Brendan, as well as less familiar poems, liturgies, narratives, and sermons all capably translated and presented by Davies (theology and religious studies, St. David's Coll., Univ. of Wales). It is a joy to see these texts gathered for the modern reader for the first time and to revisit the distinctively ardent, earthy religious experience of Celtic Christianity in the Middle Ages.
