Columbanus and the Peoples of Post-Roman Europe

Alexander O'Hara

Oxford Studies in Late Antiquity

  • Considers all of the geographical spheres in which Columbanus and his monastic communities operated and the communities he and his successors came in contact with
  • Seeks to move away from simple binary models of understanding Columbanus and his achievement between Merovingian decadence/ Columbanian renewal or between Irish/ Frankish
  • Investigates how different actors from different backgrounds and ethnic groups contributed to the creation of new identities in the early Middle Ages
