Synopsis

How did Christianity come to Scotland? A sixteen-hundred-year-old fog of mystery separates us from the dawn of Christianity in Scotland - but there are some intriguing signposts.



Roderick Graham's thorough research challenges the myths. He reveals what Scotland was like before Ninian, Columba and Kentigern and explores the nature of the Christianity that they brought. He seeks answers to the question of Ninian's existence and the arrival of Christianity at Whithorn, why Columba came to Iona, who the mysterious Culdees were, the fate of Kentigern's mother and why Kentigern met with Columba in Paisley - and he unveils the pivotal role of the synod at Whitby in 664.

RODERICK GRAHAM is author of three critically acclaimed historical biographies. In his writing, he challenges our understanding of history and provides new perspectives. He has lectured in writing and directing at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. He is a former Head of Drama at BBC Scotland and a double Emmy award winning director whose work includes many well-loved, long-running television series as well as the acclaimed Elizabeth R.
