The Celts of history—what do you know?
- They were the original barbarians at the gate
- They were pagan
- They were Christian
The Celtics were a European people group. They weren’t under Roman rule, so the Romans considered them barbarians. They knew nothing of Christ, so Christians considered them pagan.
Irish Celtic culture is unique in that it was transformed by Christianity without being transformed by the society that brought Christianity to its shores (kudos to St. Patrick). Many believe that its roots are close to the early Christian church.
