Excerpt from Journal of the Cambrian Archaeologia Association, Vol. 15 In the records of the early Celtic Church frequent mention is made of a monastery named Rosnat, or Alba, which in the fifth and sixth centuries was one of the chief centres of culture and religion, and whither many of the most celebrated British saints resorted for instruction and study. We are by means left in igrance of its history - the names of the abbot-bishops who were at its head, of the students who were educated there, even the exact number of its inmates, with many other incidents, are all placed on record; but the strange point in connection with it is that, though ne of the historians of the Celtic Church have thrown a doubt upon its existence, yet ne of them have been able to decide on its locality. Colgan thinks it may have been at Bangor in Wales, and O'Cor shares this opinion, while Lanigan suspects it may have been in Scotland, as do also Haddan and Stubbs, and the late Rev. J. F. Shearman, who has written an essay in support of the same theory. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
