Celtic spirituality has a long and distinguished ancestry with its origins in pre-Christian times.
It was inculturated amongst 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. It
has experienced various revivals during the history of Christianity, with two contemporary
expressions in New Age spirituality and Christian spirituality. From its inception, it has been
closely linked to the environment.
