Ostensibly this volume is a reliable history if we are to believe Adamnan's own preface: "Let no one imagine that I either state a falsehood regarding so great a man, or record anything doubtful or uncertain.

Thus, although religious concerns constituted the major fare of daily life, manual labor was not despised. The program in Christian education on the island consisted of instruction in Christian worship and piety, memorization of large segments of Scripture, and study of the Scriptures in Latin.
