I am fascinated by Columba, Irish missionary to Scotland & founder of the monastery at Iona.

Columba, Irish missionary to Scotland and founder of a monastery on the island of Iona, died on June 9, 597 at the age of 76.

Though more monk than missionary, he established churches that went on, in time, to evangelize the Picts and the English.”
