Máel Ísu II (bishop of the Scots)
Máel Ísu II is the sixth alleged Bishop of the Scots, 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. 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 late 10th and/or early 11th century.

Watt, (eds.), Scottichronicon by Walter Bower in Latin and English, Vol. 3, (Aberdeen, 1995), pp. 344-5, 463, where the translators wrongly translate his name, given in the Latin as Malisius, as "Maelbrigde"; see also, Andrew of Wyntoun, The Original Chronicle, line 1494, which calls him "secund Malice", available online here
