Life of Columba: An Abridged Translation of Adamnan's Vita Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The great sixth century saint and founder-abbot of Iona, St. Columba, left a mark on history that endures to this day far beyond Celtic lands. An account of his life and deeds has come down to us in the writings of Adamnan, ninth abbot of Iona, who drew on the living memory of the saint's contemporaries.

Selections from Adamnan's authoritative Life recounting the prophecies, miracles and mystical visions concerning Columba are presented here with the moving account of his death.

The text is accompanied by an atmospheric photographic portrait of the landscape in which Columba lived and in which his spirit still thrives.
