This review is from: The Celtic Church in Britain (Paperback)
I have read this book and am amazed at the amount of research put into this work. The author must have spent a huge amount of time in libraries and other places of reference to gather the excellent material in it's pages. Leslie Hardinge the author, was a Pastor at our Seventh-day Adventist Church here in Edinburgh, Scotland from 1942 and had access to first hand sources of information on the once great Celtic church. The keeping of the seventh day Sabbath, the dating of Easter and married clergy were among the major differences that seperated it from the Roman church. The Celtic churches influence and teachings reaching as far as the Ukraine in the east to Scandanavia in the north and south as far as Italy was a triumph of the gospel truth and sowing the seeds of the Reformation. The great Catholic saints of Patrick, Columba, Cuthbert, Aiden etc; were actually members of the Celtic church and had no relation to Rome - being hi-jacked by the Rome due to their inability to wipe them from history. It often bafffles me why Andrew became the Patron saint of Scotland and not Columba since he brought the gospel of Christ to these islands more than any other? Anyway heaven will reveal the truth to us one day I know. The excellent learning centres of Clonmacnoise and Clonfert in Ireland, Iona in Scotland and Lindisfarne in England being the best of their kind in Europe are also mentioned and their subsequent demise and takeover by the various Benidictine orders. A sad story maybe but triumphant in the end in the preservation of Christianity during the Dark ages. A real gem of a book.
