The lives and origins of the saints as seen through the sites where they once walked
Most books about Celtic saints are based on their legendary medieval lives. This book, however, is based upon our earliest surviving information: a study of the sites where these early Christians lived and worked. Archeology, combined with early inscriptions and texts, offers us important clues which help us to piece together something of the fascinating world of early Irish Christianity. The book is illustrated with the author's own evocative photographs of where each saint lived and worked, drawing readers into the beautiful world which these men and women inhabited.
