These are celebrations in every sense of the word -- a devotional tribute in story, song and liturgy to the Celtic saints of Britain and Ireland. Here are eighteen of the greatest figures who preserved in their Islands the Christian heritage following the collapse on the continent of the Roman Empire and the triumph of the barbarians. The churches in Britain and Brittany in loose confederation formed a wall between the pagans and the Irish Church. The Irish Church was thereby enabled to preserve the riches of Christendom and then to join the beleaguered Britons to spread the Light once again throughout all of Europe. The saints are presented as models of strength and wisdom to guide us in our lives as people of God. This book can, of course, be read alone in silence and thoughtful meditation. But the celebrations are equally suited to community gatherings and incorporated not only a commemoration of the saints, but also liturgies and service arranged according to the liturgical year. Dr. Toby David Griffen, professor of foreign languages and literature at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, has published widely on Welsh linguistics and early Celtic literature, including Names from the Dawn of British Legend: Taliesin, Aneirin, Myrddin/Merlin, Arthur.
