9781561310319: Cells of Knowledge

In this powerful and visionary novel of Celtic Britain in the tenth century, Sian Hayton writes of the Christianizing of the pagan world that was the overthrow of woman; of one particular woman in the North of Britain who comes to the monks to learn about the new faith, and they are scandalized by her beauty and her physical strength.
