Celtic Saints In Their Landscape

Celtic Saints In Their Landscape

Description

Throughout the Celtic world, in Britain, Ireland and France, the legacy of the Celtic saints remains visible. It is not easy to come close to the Celtic saints as many of their biographies were written centuries after their deaths, but the sites where they lived and worked can still be seen in the more remote parts in Britain, often set in beautiful landscapes. Using evidence from these sites, archaeology, place names and inscribed stones, as well as the literary evidence, Elizabeth Rees presents their fascinating stories. St Patrick and St Brigit in Ireland, St David in Wales, St Columba in Scotland and St Aidan in Northumbria are among the men and women whose lives and inspiration are the subject of Celtic Saints in their Landscape.
