'The Sacred World of the Celts' is a celebration of the long history, rich art, and cultural traditions of the Celts. One of the oldest traditions in Europe, this ancient culture continues to thrive in the modern world through Celtic art, music, writing, and spirituality. Nigel Pennick’s informative text describes how the Celtic tradition has developed and progressed over the centuries, from its origins in Europe to the living heritage it is today. This magnificently illustrated volume provides an invaluable source of material on every aspect of Celtic culture including lifestyle and society, mythology and folklore, as well as Celtic spirituality and its relevance to the new millennium.

Accompanied by beautiful and evocative illustrations, Nigel Pennick’s informative text describes how the Celtic tradition has developed over the centuries, from its origins in Europe to the living heritage it is today in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, the Isle of Man, and Brittany.
