Description: Sun Dancing tells of a particularly intense form of monastic life in Ireland, which had its origins some 1,400 years ago on the Skellig Islands, cruel rocks rising spectacularly from the Atlantic Ocean. It is a remarkable combination of prodigious scholarship and creative imagination by "a writer whose gifts are beyond category" (Jan Morris, The Independent).

Sun Dancing is composed of two sections. Part One is an imaginative recreation of the lives of the monks in the fourth-century monasteries and a meditation on Celtic spirituality, as relevant today as it was in the Middle Ages. Part Two enlarges topics only hinted at in Part One, including surprising connections between medieval Ireland and India, Egypt, and Byzantium; how one of the early Desert Fathers changed the course of Western art; the Celtic genius for conflating pagan naturalism and Christian theology; the influences of the Vikings, Romans, and the Anglo-Normans on Irish culture.
