Columba is one of the best known and most well documented figures in Celtic Christianity and has consistently been Scotland’s most popular saint. His journey from his native Ireland, where he was born 1500 years ago, took him eventually to Iona where he established a monastery which was to have a hugely important role in the Christianisation of the British Isles. Iona remains today a spiritual beacon and magnet drawing pilgrims from across the world keen to learn about his legacy and follow his way.

In this substantially updated and revised version of his acclaimed biography, which has never been out of print since it was first published 25 years ago, Ian Bradley examines Columba’s character, life and achievements. He explores the key themes of Columban Christianity – politics, penitence and pilgrimage – and their sometimes uncomfortable message for us today.
