Fascinating combinations of old and new appear in a breathtaking collection of illustrations and paintings that honor early Celtic Christian saints, with designs drawing upon the significant places, objects, and achievements of each figure. St. Bridget appears in an illustrated version of the ruins of fifth-century statuary, including some with a milk cow at her feet, an echo of earlier mother-goddess legends. Similar tributes salute Saints Columba, Patrick, Aidan, David, Michael, Cuthbert, Winefride, Kentigern, Petroc, Piran, Ia, Kevan, Nectan, Ita, and Winwaloe.
