The Celtic religion had a major influence on Ireland long before the adoption of Christianity in the 5th century. Since the conversion to Christianity, Roman Catholicism, has been the island’s principal religion. In our Religion section, you can browse a range of rare books relating to Irish Saints, Abbeys, and the history of Religion in Ireland.
