Máel Ísu II (bishop of the Scots)

Máel Ísu II is the sixth alleged Bishop of Cennrígmonaid, equivalent to later day St. Andrews. He is mentioned in the bishop-lists of the 15th-century historians Walter Bower and Andrew of Wyntoun as the successor of Cellach II.[1] We have no direct dates for Máel Ísu II's episcopate, but the indirect evidence for his predecessors suggests that he was bishop in the later 10th and/or early 11th century.[2]
