I have been to Glendalough twice, spending a week there each time, with many hours in the company of the authors of this book. Michael Rodgers and Marcus Losack know and love the area of Glendalough. They are deeply grounded in the spiritual heritage of Celtic Christianity and, in addition, honor the deeper and wider aspects of spirituality that are present in this ancient site. In an era when Glendalough is in danger of becoming just another spot on the tourist trail, Michael and Marcus' book helps you to go deeper into ancient traditions, whether your pilgrimage is in person or in your heart.
To get the true feeling of a place, I think you have to know the background and what to look for. Visiting Glendalough in Ireland, you'll instantly see that the area is gorgeous, but knowing the rich history of the place and what to look for will enhance the meaning. This book will take you through the monastic city of Glendalough step by step, and explain the rich history of the place.
