Just read some stuff by George Bain..he of the 1950's studies of celtic art forms....he doesnt mince his words either. He reckons St Columba had a mission to rub out any non Rome sources of Christianity under the banner of the Pallagian heresy and dumped over 200 z and v rod inscribed cross slabs in the briney off Iona. He also points out that whilst the Books of Durrow and Kells draw (?) extensively from the images of the same stones..they dont use any of the z or v designs...so whats all that about then ?????
Does this mean that Columba wasnt as saintly as the visitors centres would have us believe...
