From the Back Cover:

The eventful world of the Celtic saints is brought to life in this beautifully illustrated and fascinating journey through the history of the times and the remarkable tales of individual saints.

Nigel Pennick tells of holy animals leading saints to the site of a new church, natural springs of water with miraculous powers, saints successfully cursing the enemies of kings, pilgrimages to faraway lands, and even a saint with the power to restore a severed head.

Whether they are national figures or local heroes, whether their stories are factual or mythological, 'The Celtic Saints' celebrates the fact that their fame has spanned the centuries and still intrigues us today. Encompassing the changes from paganism to Christianity, this is an enthralling exploration of the life and times of these spiritual men and women.
