David Adam:
The Holy Island of Lindisfarne (Paperback) - Paperback

2009, ISBN: 0281058989

ID: 10848021921

[EAN: 9780281058983], Neubuch, [PU: SPCK Publishing, United Kingdom], Language: English . Brand New Book. David Adam has been captivated by the beauty, wonder and holiness of Lindisfarne since first glimpsing its fairytale castle from the train as a young boy. In this absorbing volume, he shows the island s human face, revealing how Lindisfarne and its people have responded to trial, tribulation and triumph in the course of a long and vibrant history. This tiny place witnessed one of the last stands of the British Celtic peoples against the invading Anglo-Saxons in the 6th century. It has been the home of saints and scholars, most notably St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, and famously produced the medieval masterpiece known as the Lindisfarne Gospels . Less familiar to readers, perhaps, will be that the island experienced the first recorded Viking invasion in 793, and was involved in the 17th century Civil War and the 18th century Jacobite Rebellion. Today its ruined 11th century Priory and 16th century Castle - later redesigned by the great English architect Edwin Lutyens - draw pilgrims and visitors from all over the world. Wherever you walk on Lindisfarne, the past impinges on the present.In relating afresh many of the island s legends and stories, David Adam s lovely volume affords the reader a wonderful sense of all there is to discover, just beneath the surface.
