Item description for Isle of the Saints: Monastic Settlement and Christian Community in Early Ireland by Lisa M. Bitel...

Isle of the Saints recreates the harsh yet richly spiritual world of medieval Irish monks on the Christian frontier of barbarian Europe.

Reviews - What do customers think about Isle of the Saints: Monastic Settlement and Christian Community in Early Ireland?

Excellent Treatment of the World of the Celtic Saints  Dec 10, 2002
Bitel draws upon a rich literary history of the Celtic saints and monastics to explain just how Irish society was formed by this interaction and also helped shape Irish Christianity. She is very diligent about her use of primary sources and does an excellent job supporting her thesis. In a sense, it was the early Irish monastics that shaped the very culture around them. The culture became so integrated that even the ancient holy pagan sites were adopted into Celtic Christianity. It is a must read for anyone interested in Irish Christianity. However, there is not a lot in this book about the spirituality of the saints and their wonderful method of evangelism among the Irish. It takes more of a sociological attempt to explain how Ireland became Christian. Overall a great work.
Irish Saints  Jan 20, 2002
I did my senior seminar on early Ireland and appreciated this book. It is a good resource but not the best one in my honest opinion.
