The Story of Iona
Full Product Description
Beginning with the earliest Stone Age settlements, she combines new translations of early Gaelic and medieval Latin prayers with original research to chart:
- the founding of the abbey in 563AD six centuries of monasticism:
- food, lifestyle, work and the pattern of daily prayer architecture, the high crosses and early art
- medieval Iona: the nunnery, women's lives, and catering for pilgrims
- post Reformation Iona: the rebuilding of the Abbey, the lives of the resident population and what visitors from the 17th century onwards experienced
