Irish Saints in Scotland in the Early Middle Ages: Distribution of the Cults and their Influence

Student: Nailia Rakhimova

Supervisor: Svetlana Yatsyk

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Medieval Studies (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

The thesis examines the early Irish cults of saints in Scotland, their distribution and influence on the political landscape of the emerging kingdom of Alba. Based on three hagiographic sources, namely on the Life of St. Columbus, Martyrology of Tallaght and the Aberdeen Breviary, were chosen Irish saints, whose dedications were transferred from an electronic database to an interactive map. Such a visualization of the distribution of the saints' dedications and, to some extent, their cults, will help to study in more detail the process of Christianization of Scotland and its formation as a political state.
