6:The early Christian Celtic world
The vernacular traditions of the British Isles owe their earliest written form to the Church. The 'Golden Age ' of the Church, in which all the arts flourished, was brought to an end by the Vikings. The Picts, who occupied most of Scotland, were a powerful people with a unique style of art. In the fifth century the Scots, who came from Ireland, founded the kingdom of Dalriada in western Scotland, and by the middle of the ninth century had taken control of the whole country.
