Description
By the year A.D. 400, Christianity was thriving in the remote world of the Celts. As their centuries-old civilization began to yield to the new religion, ancient tribal themes continued in the lives of the saints. Fascinating combinations of old and new appear in a breathtaking collection of illustrations and paintings that honor early Celtic Christian saints, with designs that draw upon the significant places, objects, and achievements of each figure. St. Bridget is shown in an illustrated version of the ruins of 5th-century statuary, including some with a milk cow at her feet -- an echo of earlier mother-goddess legends. St. Columba is pictured first in his 6th-century childhood dreams, then with his handwritten gospels, his heroics at the Battle of Cuildrevne, and his monastic community that he founded at Iona. Similar tributes salute saints Patrick, Aidan, David, Michael, Cuthbert, Winefride, Kentigern, Petroc, Piran, Ia, Kevan, Nectan, Ita, and Winwaloe.
