From A Compendium of Irish Biography, 1878
Dunan, or Donat, Bishop of Dublin, 1038 — the first Dane called to that office. He is worthy of remembrance as having, in 1038, by the aid of the Danish King Sitric, built the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity (Christ Church) "in the heart of the city of Dublin." A correspondence, part of which was available in Ware's time, was maintained between him and Lanfranc, Archbishop of Canterbury, concerning baptism. Bishop Dunan died 6th May 1074, and was buried near the high altar of the cathedral he had built.

But when fate eventually intervened to have the outside world intrude upon his life, he began to discover emotions that he never knew he had.
A story for the genuine booklover, penned by an Irish bookseller under the pseudonym of Ralph St. John Featherstonehaugh.
