He is very much associated with Iona, the Scottish island famed for monastic culture and nowadays often The sin of Columcille book in terms of “Celtic Christianity.” Iona is linked to the Book of Kells as it Iona; or thought that the book was begun in the monastery there during the 9 th century and, because of Viking raids, brought to Ireland with the fleeing monks where it ended up in the Abbey of Kells.

The most important of those writings was the Vita Columbae or 'Life of the saint' by Adomnán the ninth abbot of Iona and a later relative. Adomnán (who died in ) was himself a very impressive and influential cleric and the author of a number of other works which have survived.

Columba was born of a noble family around in Donegal, Ireland, and died on the island of Iona, off the west coast of Scotland, in Early destined for the priesthood, he later took monastic vows and kept them with a feisty zeal (he is attributed with founding twenty-five monasteries and forty churches by the age of twenty-five!).

Adamnani Vita S. Columbae: prophecies, miracles and visions of St. Columba (Columcille) first abbot of Iona, A. by Adamnan, Saint. ; Fowler, Joseph Thomas, tr.

Columcille or Columba, Saint, one of the greatest names in the early ecclesiastical history of the British Isles, was born at Gartan, in the County of Donegal, 7th December He was a descendant of Niall of the Nine Hostages—his father’s name being Fedhlimidh, and his mother’s Eithne, both of royal descent.

He studied at Moville under St. Finnian by whom he was ordained a deacon. Columba's own conscience was uneasy, and on the advice of an aged hermit, Molaise, he resolved to expiate his sense of offence by departing Ireland. The term "exile" is used in some references.

This, too, can be disputed, for the term "pilgrimage" is used more frequently in the literature about him. What we do know is that Columcille became a monk at a young age, and by 23 was already a force to be reckoned with, travelling through Ulster and founding monasteries.

One that he founded was Doire, which later became the city of Derry. Another was Kells, where the great illustrated bible the Book of Kells would be produced. The Book of Kells (created on Iona around ) may have been made either to celebrate the second centenary of Columba's death or to mark the foundation of the monastery of Kells which, after Iona (and before Derry), was the headquarters of all the Columban churches in Ireland.

Columcille represents the offbeat dream of two highly spiritual fellows: Bill Cohen Jr., and Frederick Lindkvist.

Once established on Iona, where he became custodian of the Lia Fail Stone, Columba set about making his famous Book of Kells in order to give people what he considered to be the true Gospel and so did not include in it things that he knew had already been corrupted by the church, in order to justify the church's own existence, in direct contradiction of Christ's commands to the faithful.
