    The Book of Kells (created on Iona around ) may have been made either to celebrate the second centenary of Columba's death or to mark the foundation of the monastery of Kells which, after Iona (and before Derry), was the headquarters of all the Columban churches in Ireland. SAINT DATA: Columban, abbot and missioner, Born in Leinster (Ireland), c. ; d. at Bobbio, Italy, ; feast day 23 November. [*Note that, despite Jonas' assertion that Columban was also known as "Columba", he is distinct from St. Columba, founder of Iona, born in , d. , and whose feast day is June 9.] THE LIFE OF ST. COLUMBAN.

    St Adomnan was born in Ireland c, a descendant of St Columba's grandfather. In he became the ninth abbot of Iona. He played an important role in persuading the northern Irish churches to adopt the Catholic date for Easter, but his most famous work is his Life of St Columba.4/5(2). Richard Sharpe's version of Adomnan's Life of St Columba consists of three, roughly equal, parts - an introduction, the book itself, and a series of scholarly notes. My advice would be to read the book itself first, then delve back into the introduction, which gives a helpful background to the political, religious and social climate of the time/5(27).

      Early Life of St Columba As a young child, he spent most of his time at the nearby little church and was called Colmcille meaning “little dove” a name he is still known as in Ireland.

The book - Adomnan's Life of Columba - is fascinating as a rare surviving early hagiography; full of detail concerning the politics, law, and customs of 6th century Scotland, Ireland, and Columba's interaction with the leading figures of that time/5(22).
