Thousands of people visit the tiny and remote Hebridean island of Iona each year to experience its unique atmosphere of tranquil spirituality. The wood and wattle buildings built by Columba and his monks have long since vanished, replaced by the Benedictine abbey of stone which, after the Reformation, fell into neglect, to languish for three hundred years as no more than a romantic ruin.

A beautiful, informative book, illustrated with black and white and colour photographs.Sitting majestically atop the ridge of Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, St Giles’ looks imposingly down upon Scotland’s capital. It has been at the centre to some of the most significant moments in Scotland’s history and centre-stage to some of its biggest players. This book, based on new research, tells the story of Scotland’s most famous church from its foundation in the 1120s through the 17th-century Prayer Book riot, the writing of the Covenant in 1638, the execution of Montrose and Argyll, becoming the seat of the Order of the Thistle to the current culmination of an ambitious thirty-year renewal programme which has brought colour and light to a living church. St Giles’ is home not only to its own congregation but also to regular civic and national services, not to mention nearly half a million visitors a year.
Reviews about St Giles': The Dramatic Story of a Great Church and its People (3):
Nkeiy
Beware - this is not a picture-filled guide book. I was recently in Edinburgh and regretted not buying one of the St. Giles guidebooks while there. I ordered this one, thinking that it would be a good souvenir. It has very few pictures, but is an exhaustive history of the cathedral. Not bad, but just not what I expected.

This newly published book is the latest written by the well known author of Scottish history and biography who also happens to love Edinburgh's St. Giles' cathedral. You might say she has written a biography of St. Giles'.
Dr. Rosalind Marshall's language is always easy on the eye and ear and totally accessible to anyone interested in history, art and human nature. Here she explains the complications of the early years of the church both in the world of Scottish Kings and Queens as well as the burgers of Edinburgh. We learn then how this great church fared throughout the turmoils of the Reformation the change from Catholicism to Scottish Presbyterianism. We meet the great actors in this world of Church and state politics like John Knox and his famous opponent Mary Queen of Scots, but we also meet ordinary men and women who prayed and argued in the church itself. We meet the architects who designed it, the stained glass artists who were responsible for its splendid windows, the sculptors who created the memorials along its walls. We learn about the magnificent Thistle Chapel and the Thisle Quilters who embroidered gold angels blowing trumpets on banners for special occasions. We can almost hear the rousing music thundering forth from the great organ so intriguingly photographed among the many beautiful illustrations. We learn of the major changes, for example, how the altar was moved from the traditional east end of the Church to become the "Holy Table" in the middle of the congregation. We get to know the priests and later the ministers who have been responsible for the conduct and development of the cathedral.
I highly recommended this story so full of colour, drama and beauty.
