Scope and Contents

Note about St Columba's first attempt to build a church on Iona [Ì Chaluim Chille], in which the walls were put up during the day but fell down at night owing to the spirit of darkness. Oran or Oranus was sacrificed to stop this happening. Text scored through perhaps to indicate it has been transcribed elsewhere.
