Altus Prosator

SAINT COLUMBA OF IONA

(521-597)

 

This season's featured words from our saints are those of the abecedarian hymn "Altus Prosator" of Saint Columba of Iona, a monk from Donegal in ancient Ireland who founded an abbey at Iona in Scotland, carrying Christianity to that country. Also known as Columcille, he was among the pioneers of a larger movement of missionary monastics from the British Isles who spread and helped strengthen Christian community throughout Western Europe in the sixth through eighth centuries.
