This resource is a biographical introduction to the life and work of St. Columba of Iona (521–597), venerated by the Orthodox Church as the “Enlightener of Scotland.” Columba was an Irish missionary and monastic who traveled to Scotland to evangelize the Picts, establishing a monastery on the island of Iona, just off the west coast of Scotland. He is also the earliest source of the legend of the Loch Ness Monster (ca. 565).
