The Celtic fan club

There is no doubt we are experiencing a revival in ‘Celtic’ spirituality. It’s not hard to find shops with Celtic craft and jewellery, books of Celtic prayers, CDs of Celtic music. Each year thousands of people go on ‘pilgrimages’ to Celtic places like Iona. But to what extent does contemporary Celtic spirituality reflect historical Celtic spirituality (approximately the fourth to the tenth centuries AD)? And to what extent does either reflect biblical spirituality?
