The Golden Age of Irish Art and the time when Ireland earned a reputation as an island of saints and scholars is the setting for the subject of this fine short history. The records of the time and the best of modern historical scholarship are combined in a clearly-written overview of this key period. The book starts with the origins of Christianity in Ireland and moves on to cover in detail the life, work, and character of Patrick. It outlines the origins and development of Irish monasticism and introduces some of the major monastic founders, including Colum Cille in Britain and Columba's efforts in Europe. The book concludes with a discussion of the penitentials, the Easter controversy, and early Irish Christian art. John R. Walsh is a past president of St. Columb's College and Thomas Bradley teaches religion and history at St. Columb's.
