Profile

Bishop in Ireland. When the requirements of the office crowded out his prayer life, Cuaran moved to Iona, hid his identity, and became a monk. However, he was recognized by Saint Columba and returned to his duty. Called “the Wise” due to his extensive knowledge of the canons of the Church.
