Reading Ireland : print, reading, and social change in early modern Ireland by Raymond Gillespie( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fascinating and innovative study explores the lives of those who lived in early modern Ireland through the books and printed ephemera which they bought, borrowed or stole from others. While the importance of books and printing in shaping the outlook of early modern people is well known, recent years have seen significant changes in our understanding of how writing and print shaped lives, and was in turn shaped by those who appropriated the written word. This book draws on this literature to shed light on the changes that took place in Ireland, where almost uniquely a set of revolutions took place which transformed the lives of its inhabitants in unexpected ways. The rise of writing and the spread of print were central to an understanding of those changes which have previously only been understood as the result of conquest and colonisation. This book is for those interested both in the Irish past and by all those who are concerned with the impact of communications media on social change. -- Publisher description

The medieval manuscripts of Christ Church cathedral, Dublin( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book studies one of the most remarkable collections of medieval manuscripts in Ireland. In the popular mind the medieval archives of Ireland were all destroyed in the Four Courts fire of 1922 but this is far from the truth. From the 1170s the Augstinian cathedral priory at Christ Church in Dublin commissioned, collected and used manuscript materials in its everyday life. In the process it created an important series of codices and deeds that remained in the cathedral and so survived the Public Record Office fire. This significant assemblage of material from the twelfth-century martyrology to the sixteenth-century 'Book of Obits' reflects the changing religious, social, cultural and intellectual concerns of the world in which they were written. Each essay analyzes a manuscript and places it in its wider context."--BOOK JACKET

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories from Gaelic Ireland : microhistories from the sixteenth-century Irish annals by Bernadette Cunningham( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This quirky, yet important book, breaks new ground in the study of Gaelic Ireland by exploiting the rich source material contained in the sixteenth-century Annals of Ulster, Annals of Connacht, the Annals of Loch Ce and the Four Masters. While attention has previously been paid to poetry in Irish as a source for the history of the 16th century, the richness of the prose sources have not been exploited by historians. The annals contain a series of short accounts of events arranged by year. The storytelling of the annalists provides the openings into the past that are the key to this book, which uses seven of their longer stories to examine, at micro level, aspects of Gaelic society that created them. The significance of each story is illuminated by reference to other contemporary evidence, including the genealogies and the poetry. The text is provided in both the original Irish with an English language translation, with extensive writings placing the passages in their historical time. -- Publisher description

St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin : a history( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dublin is an unusual city in having two Anglican cathedrals within a few hundred yards of each other, St Patricks cathedral and the diocesan cathedral of Christ Church. This volume chronicles the history of St Patricks cathedral over the millennium of its existence, the first work to do so for almost two hundred years. It charts the impact of events such as the Reformation in the sixteenth century and disestablishment in the nineteenth century as well as chronicling the evolution of a local community through the architecture of the cathedrals buildings and the music of its worship. As such the book casts into relief not only the life of the church but also the workings of the city and the country as a whole through their turbulent histories.--from publisher description
