Description - Isle of the Saints by Lisa M. Bitel

Isle of the Saints recreates the harsh yet richly spiritual world of medieval Irish monks on the Christian frontier of barbarian Europe. Lisa Bitel draws on accounts of saints' lives written between 800 and 1200 to explain, from the monks' own perspective, the social networks that bound them to one another and to their secular neighbors.

Buy Isle of the Saints by Lisa M. Bitel from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
