Return to Album
The abbey is one of the oldest and most important religious centres in Western Europe. St. Columba came here from Ireland in AD 563 with 12 companions and founded a monastery which grew to be an influential centre for the spread of Christianity among the Picts (Celtic tribe) and Scots. The Book of Kells (famous illuminated manuscript) is believed to have been produced by the monks of Iona in the years leading up to 800. In 806, Vikings massacred 68 monks in Martyrs' Bay and Columba's monks returned to Ireland, and a monastery at Kells. Many early Scots and chiefs, as well as kings from Ireland, Norway & France, are buried in the Abbey graveyard - including Duncan, the victim of Macbeth.
