A Celtic Approach to Reaching Oral Learners: the Iona Community ca. 600-800

Ed Smither, Columbia International University

columba 521 597
Columba (521-597)

There came from Ireland to Britain a priest and abbot named Columba, a true monk in life no less than habit; he came to Britain to preach the word of God to the kingdoms of the northern Picts . . . Columba came to Britain when Bridius [Brute] . . . a most powerful king, had been ruling over them for over eight years. Columba turned them to the faith of Christ by his words and example and so received the island of Iona from them in order to establish a monastery there (Bede, Ecclesiastical History, 3.4).
