From Sinai to Iona: The Rule of St Basil the Great | First Fragments (pt 9)

The Rule of St Basil
Play Video

The Rule of St Basil has always been hugely influential among Christians in the Byzantine world, but its influence is felt among Coptic Christians too, and even as far afield as Iona! For the early Irish monastic saints, St Basil the Great was a trusted guide.

The First Fragments exhibition runs in the Chester Beatty, Dublin, until 3 September 2023, and entrance is free.

Acknowledgments: we are grateful to the Chester Beatty for granting us permission to film on location, and especially grateful to Dr Jill Unkel (Curator of Western Collections) for facilitating our visit.
