Scottish Kings and Saints - SFU course, Vancouver, May-June 2011

News about a course at SFU in Vancouver on Scottish Kings and Saints.

The Centre for Scottish Studies is offering a four-week non-credit extramural course at the Harbour Centre campus on the early history of Scotland, taught by Dr. Antone Minard. The course will cover notable individuals who shaped the culture of Scotland, including the early kings such as Kenneth MacAlpin, Malcolm III, and Macbeth, and important early Scottish saints: Ninian, Columba (Colum Cille), Kentigern, Mael Rubai, and others.
