Columba and his exile.
This month we hear the story of Columba (or Colum Cille ‘the dove of the church’)and his exile. We start with excerpts from The Magnificent Gael by Reginald Hale, from which we have pictures of Columba’s training in monastic life and his early foundations. During his middle years Columba became involved in a dispute over a Psalter that led to a pitched battle at Culdremny in which many men were killed. In penance, he resolved to leave Ireland for good.
The story of Columba’s exile and subsequent work from the island base of Iona is continued in excerpts from The First Exile, an epic by Irish poet Robert Farren, in which he shows how Columba eventually conquers the fierce temper and hot resentment which had previously caused so much strife.
