With the collapse of the Roman Empire, it was the Celtic Church which kept the flames of Christianity burning. This gift book tells the story of those missionaries who, throughout the sixth and seventh centuries, traveled throughout Europe in their battle against paganism.
Their stories can only be a mixture of fact and legend. Fact is certainly discernible in the stone remains of their buildings, less often, in the fanciful biographies written centuries after their deaths. But who knows where truth ends and myth begins? Each story of these saints has been beautifully illustrated by Ann MacDuff.
