Art and Devotion in Late Medieval Ireland PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Art and Devotion in Late Medieval Ireland free pdf The religious art of early Christian Ireland has attracted much scholarly and popular attention. In contrast, the devotional world of later medieval Ireland has, until recently, been relatively neglected. This multi-disciplinary volume redresses this by examining the material culture of late medieval Irish devotion against its artistic, historical, theological and liturgical background. The contributors draw on recent advances in international scholarship to provide a broader context for the Irish material. The subjects examined include: wall paintings, metalwork, shrines and reliquaries, manuscripts and books of hours, stained glass and vestments. Other contributions deal with the religious imagery of Irish bardic poetry and the cults of the Virgin Mary and St Francis of Assisi.
