Columba's Island

Iona from Past to Present

Mairi MacArthur

Edition: 2

Paperback (Printed to Order)

For the Gaels it is I Chaluim Chille. From here, Colum Cille – or St Columba – and his successors spread their Christian mission throughout Scotland and beyond. An early king of Dál Riata was consecrated here, and later the mighty Lords of the Isles brought their chieftains for burial on Iona’s soil. In more recent times the island was the setting for the Iona Community, a radical experiment in church witness and worship.
