Description:

The Ireland of the Dark Ages inspired strange and marvelous legends that intertwined history and fancy. Today, these legends live on in the stories of wandering saints, who performed good works and miraculous feats on their travels throughout the British Isles and Europe. From well-known and beloved icons—such as Saint Patrick, who chased the pagans from the shores of Ireland along with the snakes, or Brigid, the wise woman of Kildare, who displayed a special gift for healing the sick—to the likes of Columba of Iona, David of Wales, and Aidan of Lindisfarne, Celtic Saints tells their stories, with each saint beautifully depicted in illustrations reminiscent of stained-glass windows.
