    I wanted to like this book I enjoyed the little historical background illustrations that showed how a coracle was constructed, the order of strokes for the uncial alphabet, and the steps in cutting a quill pen But puhleeze could we dispense with the depiction of the Middle Ages as the Dark Ages, a period of ignorance and the shadow it cast over people s mind That s such a tired old stereotype And despite the mention of monasteries and scribes, the relig...

    This is book that documents the life of Columcille He was born to an Irish king in 521 and was a well looked up to and known figure in Celtic history Learning, reading, and writing during this time were seen as something rare and not necessary Columcille loved to write and he became a monastery student and this was an inspiration and rare at that time Once a monk he scribed and was a poet before printing came along He was so remarkable because he was not only a prince, but he was also a scribe and a poet as well He loved a book that was of psalms and secretly copied it when that was not allowed Once found, there was a dispute of who the copy belonged to After a battle broke out between him and the original owner in which Columcille s side won Although he won, there was blood on his paper and he went against ...

    this should be a charming book, primarily about the childhood of st Columba And the illustrations are wonderful however, i find it astonishing that anyone would refer to the 500 s in Ireland as the dark ages and define it as the darkness of ignorance and the shadow it cast over people s minds and then proceed to talk about how monasteries were the repository of light, educati...

    Across a Dark and Wild Sea is about Columcille He is living in the Dark Ages in 1572 He is said to have ate a cake filled with letters of the alphabet and that is how he came to love writing There are hardly any books in the world at this time and Columcille is a script and makes written copies of books This informational picture book is...

    Similar to The Man Who Loved Books A downside to that similarity is the emphasis on being personally worthy to atone for one s sins I was also annoyed by the depiction of the Middle Ages as a time of widespread ignorance But I did like the emphasis on the treasure of and in books.

    The book Across a Dark Wild Sea by Don Brown follows the journey of a writer, Columcille Columcille was born a very long time ago and rumor has it that when he was younger he was given cake with alphabetical letters in it The legend has it that this is what made Columcille so smart He grew up to be a monk and copied down writings for many many years Eventually Columcille gets in trouble for copying something he was not given the right to This eventually leads t...

    Across a Dark and Wild Sea was written and illustrated by Don Brown The illustrations were unique and beautiful, and went perfectly with the story The book was about Columcille and his journey through life He was a monk, prince, scribe, bard and he was determined to create a copy of Finnian s book in order to have a copy for himself,...

    In conjunction with Story of the World Vol 2 I thought this was a nice picture book biography and view into life in the 6th century We are so tired of reading about wars in SotW and so to read about 3000 killed over a book was sickening Not that books aren t valuable But, the truth hurts, eh Loved the watercolor illustra...

    This works well as an introduction to illuminated manuscripts and the idea of monasteries and such But it fails in a particularly glaring sense since it s about a MONK and the book that starts the whole adventure is the PSALMS, I expected a teensy bit about the monk s religion belief...
