Gothic Art in Ireland, 1169-1550 by Colum Hourihane
Book DescriptionIt will come as a surprise to many that a wealth of Gothic art and architecture can still be found in Ireland. This groundbreaking book examines for the first time the most westerly expression of Gothic--on the edge of Europe--and traces its development from the beginning of the thirteenth century to the Reformation. Colum Hourihane offers new insights into Gothic Irish art, and he presents a revised view of art in Ireland in the Middle Ages. Brought to Ireland by the Anglo-Normans and religious reform movements, the style was adopted and adapted locally, first appearing in monastic architecture and subsequently in the other arts. The book looks at what survives of Gothic art in Ireland, examines previously unknown material, and discusses such wide-ranging topics as the historiography of the style, its metalwork, iconography, and forms.

Books By Author Colum Hourihane
Pontius Pilate, Anti-Semitism, and the Passion in Medieval Art, Hardback (April 2009)
Pontius Pilate is one of the Bible's best-known villains - but up until the tenth century, artistic imagery appears to have consistently portrayed him as a benevolent Christian and holy symbol of baptism. This book looks at the shifting visual and textual representations of Pilate throughout early Christian and medieval art.
Objects, Images, and the Word, Paperback (April 2003)
The medieval liturgy was in many ways a performance in which the worshipper was transformed into both actor and audience - an act of intense involvement steeped in spoken words, music, and images alike. This volume tells that "liturgical art" was far from being a rigidly controlled or formulaic genre.
