This slim but substantial volume presents a host of clues concerning the misty beginnings of Celtic Christianity. Telepneff has surveyed the source literature relevant to monasticism, saints' lives, liturgy, art and architecture from the period and makes a strong case for the origins of Irish monasticism (and therefore English monasticism) in the bosom of the Egypt of the Desert Fathers via southern France. The author is not the first to have so argued, but he has buttressed his case with citation after citation, leaving the reader with a strong sense of the seamlessness of the development of Christian monasticism East and West.
