A theological study of the sense of "holy place?", and the links between nationality, nationalism and spirituality. Is nationalism fundamentally opposed to any ideas of equality, tolerance or international understanding, or can it be expressed in humanitarian and Christian forms?
A thorough study of the relationship between the spirituality of the Welsh nation and a sense of nationhood, by means of an examination of Welsh religious and literary traditions from the 6th to the 20th century.
