Riassunto: Sixteen hundred years after his death, Martin of Tours - soldier turned holy man and hermit - continues to exert a profound influence on our contemporary experience of the Christian faith as we increasingly embrace the Celtic spirituality which he inspired. Martin's rejection of the superficial establishment Christianity of the crumbling Roman Empire in favour of creating communities of believers as found in the New Testament, marked the beginning of a dynamic new era for western Christianity and ignited a flame that continues to burn brightly to this day. The story of St Martin is the story of the passion and energy of the Celtic people encountering the simplicity, heroism and joy of the early church and responding to it in mass conversion. Today, not only are hundreds of churches dedicated in his honour, but on Iona and throughout the British Isles, Celtic crosses and other ancient monuments can be found to this wise and generous saint whose dynamic leadership of the monastic community he founded directly inspired Patrick and Columba to their great missionary endeavours. Christopher Donaldson's vivid and compelling portrait re-establishes Martin of Tours as a spiritual leader with a message for our own day.

Martin of Tours' decision to reject the declining culture of the Roman Empire in the fourth century A.D., superficially Christianized by Constantine, marks the beginning of a new era for Christianty. As well as being a biography. this book discusses more general aspects of provincial Christianity in the West: the role of the catechumen, western monasticism before St. Benedict, and how pagan Europe was first converted to Christianity. Martin was particularly shrewd at accommodating pagan beliefs and practices to Christianity, and he quickly became the folk hero of the Celtic peoples, who saw him as the apostle of France. Army officer, holy man, pastor, healer, exorcist, and founder of western monaticism, the life of Martin Tours still generates important lessons for Christian churches today, and directs fresh light on to the origins of Christianity in Britain. 171 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions etc.) Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
