Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dagan was an Irish bishop in Britain during the early part of the 7th century. Dagan is known from a letter written by Archbishop Laurence of Canterbury to the Irish bishops and abbots, in which Laurence attempted to persuade the Irish clergy to accept the Roman method of calculating the date of Easter. Dagan is mentioned in the letter as having recently arrived in Kent. Laurence mentions that Dagan had refused to either share a roof with the Roman missionaries or to eat with them. The full mention of Dagan is "But we have learned from bishop Dagan who came to the above-mentioned island [Britannia] and from abbot Columbanus in Gaul, that they [the Irish clergy] do not differ from the Britons in their way of life. For when Bishop Dagan came to us he refused to take food, not only with us but even in the very house where we took meals.show more
