The Celtic Art Coracle Volume 1 Issue 3 
The Argument Against a Celtic Revival - Alexander Blair-Ewart (continued)

I maintain that the twentieth century will see a revival of every old national culture before we actually emerge into the dawn of a new age. France had its revival just before the Second World War under De Gaulle with his "La France, c'est Moi!" China had its revival under Mao Tse Tung. There are perhaps only a few sweeping cultural revolutions left. No doubt, the day will come when modern Russia will want to reclaim its past, though it is unlikely that the politburo will initiate this soon.

A Celtic revival has now begun in the western world. Is it to be a resurgence of ancient pagan aggression or a flowering of the mystical rose of Celtic Christianity?
