A new history
Rosalind K. Marshall
Using a wide variety of sources and taking into account the results of the most recent historical and archaeological research, Rosalind K. Marshall charts the many developments on Iona throughout the centuries, investigating why it has had such an enduring influence on Scottish life. In our own apparently secular age, thousands of people still visit the tiny and remote Hebridean island each year to experience its unique atmosphere of tranquil spirituality.
‘A most helpful account of the comings and goings over the centuries on this jewel of an island.’
‘A valuable and timely contribution to the literature on this rich seam of Scottish history.’
-The Very Rev Finlay MacDonald
