Insula Sanctorum et Doctorum

ByJohn Healy

A detailed survey of Ireland's ancient schools and scholars, from the time before St. Patrick, to the establishment of Irish monastic schools in the fifth and sixth century. Special attention is given to the School of St. Finnian of Clonard and the Columban schools. In the following pages it has been the author’s purpose to give a full and accurate, but at the same time, as he hopes, a popular account of the Schools and Scholars of Ancient Ireland. It is a subject about which much is talked, but little is known, and even that little is only to be found in volumes that are not easily accessible to the general reader. In the present work the history of the Schools and Scholars of Celtic Erin is traced from the time of St. Patrick down to the Anglo-Norman Invasion of Ireland. - Excerpt from Ireland's Ancient Schools and Scholars, Insula Sanctorum et Doctorum
