Dear Wen: Goliath…

‘Peace to their shades. The pure Culdees
Were Albyn’s earliest priests of God,
Ere yet an island of her seas
By foot of Saxon monk was trod.’
– Reullura, Thomas Campbell.

Interesting use of the word ‘peace’ and ‘shade’ in the light of our recent experiences do you not think…

Also pretty much places Ireland and all the Scottish isles in Albion which is useful… and as for Saxon Monk, well…

I like ‘City States’ as senses, not least because it pushes the ‘New Testament Code’ back into the ‘Old…’ and also seems to confirm our earlier theories.

    Interesting post. That fabulous life-sized woodcarving is in the parish church of St Mary the Virgin on Lindisfarne, isn’t it? I remember being bowled over by it when we were there last year. Love the place, and we’re planning to live in Northumberland after I’ve done my MA in medieval studies at York. Such wonderful, rich and turbulent history.
