Reviews

“The title of this collection announces a project to understand the processes of enculturation of early modern versions of Christianity across a set of geographical zones described as ‘celtic’. … This might be an avenue for further investigation, aided by cultural anthropologists of a historical or archeological bent.” (Thomas O’Connor, Studia Hibernica, Vol. 41, 2014)
