Gothic Art in Ireland, 1169-1550 by Colum Hourihane

Book Description

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. Hourihane 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 by 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 by Colum Hourihane 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.

Insights and Interpretations by Colum Hourihane Insights and Interpretations, Paperback (July 2002)

Established in 1917, the Index of Christian Art, located at Princeton University, is the largest archive of medieval art in existence and the most specialized resource for the iconographer. This book features essays that highlight some of the research in the archive and the scholarship for which it has been renowned.
