A beautifully simple and accessible account of the world of Colmcille/Columba whose 1400th anniversary was celebrated in 1997. The book 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 are widely known. He was a man of adventure and charisma from the warrior-aristocracy of Ireland and Colmcille's legacy lives on in legend and history. This work draws on the history, art, literature and archaeology of the time.
