Celtic spirituality has a long and distinguished ancestry with its origins in pre-Christian times.
It was inculturated among peoples in the far west of Europe, particularly in Ireland, Scotland
and the north and south-west of England. It was different from Roman Christianity in distinct
ways until the mid-7th century CE when Roman Christianity became the norm in Britain and
Ireland. This spirituality has endured throughout the centuries and has experienced a revival
from the latter half of the 20th century. From its inception, it has been closely linked to the
environment. Over the years many key aspects of Celtic spirituality have been integrated in
many religious traditions and shows similarities with and can contribute to a new ethical
perspective on environmental issues. This article investigates the current environmental crisis
from a faith perspective and attempts to draw lessons from Celtic traditions of spirituality in
a scientific age.
