    In this delightful and illuminating look into a crucial but little-known "hinge" of history, Thomas Cahill
    takes us to the "island of saints and scholars," the Ireland of St. Patrick and the Book of Kells. Here, far from the
    barbarian despoliation of the continent, monks and scribes laboriously, lovingly, even playfully preserved the West's

    becoming not only the conservators of civilization, but also the shapers of the medieval mind, putting their unique
    stamp on Western culture.
