Andrew Schultz writes about the adventures of an unlikely hero in Saints and Heroes. Running through the spectrum of hope, despair and faith, it follows Anselm from his boyhood on the rugged isolation of the Isle of Iona through a course of study at Glastonbury (a great center of medieval learning rivaling Canterbury).
