Celtic Saints of Ireland, Paperback / softback Book

Celtic Saints of Ireland Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Most books about Celtic saints are based on their legendary medieval lives.

This book, however, is based upon our earliest surviving information: an examination of the sites where these early Christians lived and worked.

Archaeology, combined with the study of place names, inscribed stones and early texts, offers us important clues which help us to piece together something of the fascinating world of early Irish Christianity.

Elizabeth Rees, an acknowledged authority on Celtic Christianity, has produced this insightful history which is the first in an exciting new series.

Illustrated throughout with her own evocative photographs of where these saints resided and worked, the reader is drawn into the beautiful world which these men and women inhabited.
