Through violent incursions by the Vikings and the spread of Christianity, medieval Ireland maintained a distinctive Gaelic identity. From the sacred site of Tara to the manuscript illuminations in the Book of Kells, Anglo-Irish relations to the Connachta dynasty, Ireland during the middle ages was a rich and vivid culture. First published in 2005, Medieval Ireland: An Encyclopedia brings together in one authoritative resource the multiple facets of life in Ireland before and after the Anglo-Norman invasion of 1169, from the sixth to sixteenth century. Multidisciplinary in coverage, this A-Z reference work provides information on historical events, economics, politics, the arts, religion, intellectual history, and many other aspects of the period. Written by the world's leading scholars on the subject, this highly accessible reference work will be of key interest to students, researchers, and general readers alike.

Between the later middle ages and the eighteenth century, religious orders were in the vanguard of reform movements within the Christian church. Recent scholarship on medieval Europe has emphasised how mendicants exercised a significant influence on the religiosity of the laity by actually shaping their spirituality and piety. In a similar way for the early modern period, religious orders have been credited with disseminating Tridentine reform, training new clergy, gaining new converts and bringing those who had strayed back into the fold. Much about this process, however, still remains unknown, particularly with regards to east central Europe. Exploring the complex relationship between western monasticism and lay society in east central Europe across a broad chronological timeframe, this collection provides a re-examination of the level and nature of interaction between members of religious orders and the communities around them. That the studies in this collection are all located in east central Europe - Transylvania, Hungary, Austria, and Bohemia- fulfils a second key aim of the volume: the examination of clerical and lay piety in a region of Europe almost entirely ignored by western scholarship. As such the volume provides an important addition to current scholarship, showcasing fresh research on a subject and region on which little has been published in English. The volume further contributes to the reintegration of eastern and western European history, expanding the existing parameters of scholarly discourse into late medieval and early modern religious practice and piety.

In this book, Caimin O'Brien looks beneath the monastic ruins of County Offaly. O'Brien draws on archaeology, history, poetry, folklore and legend to create vivid portraits of twenty-three sacred places within Offaly. He recounts the tales that surround the county's first saints and the monasteries they founded. Because four of the five ancient provinces of Ireland met in Offaly, its monasteries played a crucial economic and political role in Irish history. O'Brien follows the stories of Offaly's monastic foundations through tribal conflict, Anglo-Norman conquest, Gaelic Revival, the Reformation and on to the present day. Lavish illustrations make this book a visual feast. It features images of Offaly's monastic landscape by the internationally renowned photographer James Fraher. The book also contains full-colour photographs of the treasures produced in Offaly's monasteries, including exquisite gold, silver and bronze artworks and illuminated manuscripts. In addition, it highlights the artistry of monastic stonemasons and of the county's stained glass windows, many by Harry Clarke Studios.

The Franciscan Order was one of the most remarkable and influential forces in medieval and early modern Irish society. While the earlier and later phases of the movement have attracted the historian's notice, the remarkable second flowering, which occurred between 1400 and 1534, has not been explained until now. This study traces the reforming tendencies among the friars from the beginning of the fifteenth century to the eve of the Reformation. The most important group to emerge were the Observant friars, recognised as an independent body in 1460. The emergence of groups of lay people living according to the rule of the Franciscan Third Order is also fully explored as well as the developments among the Conventual (or unreformed) Friars. A major feature of this work is the emphasis placed on the lifestyle of the friars themselves. Particular attention is paid to their religious, liturgical and disciplinary practises, their educational and governmental structures and their impact as preachers and confessors as demonstrated by the material listed in the library catalogue of the Youghal Friary between 1490 and 1523. The first complete edition of this important and unique document is given as an appendix.
