In May 2013 it will be exactly 1450 years since the arrival on Iona of Columba, the imperious and energetic Irishman of royal descent who founded its famous monastery and became Scotland's best known Celtic saint. To celebrate this important anniversary, Iona Cathedral Trust has commissioned this new book that uses a wide variety of sources and takes into account the results of the most recent historical and archaeological research to chart the many developments on Iona throughout the centuries, investigating why it has had such an enduring influence on Scottish life.
