A beautifully simple and accessible account of the world of Colmcille/Columba whose 1400th anniversary was celebrated in 1997. It deals with the life of the times of Colmcille and the saint's involvement in politics and religious affairs.

The life and works of this famous saint, known as Columba in Scotland. A man of adventure and charisma from the warrior-aristocracy of Ireland, Colmcille's legacy lives on in legend and history. Draws on the history, art, literature and archaeology of the time.

Also available in paperback.
