Description - Medieval Ireland by Sean Duffy
Medieval Ireland presents the culture and society of Ireland from the sixth to the sixteenth century. The Encyclopedia will provide an exhaustive portrait of a lively and provocative period while exploring a rich field of study. Most scholarly works on Irish history cover either the pre- or post- Anglo-Norman invasion of 1169. Medieval Ireland will span both periods, resolving this artificial dichotomy in a natural manner within a single volume. Coverage of multiple fields of study will answer the increasing interdisciplinarity of Irish medieval studies. This comprehensive approach will help readers draw connections between disciplines and topics. Written by approximately 200 scholarly contributors, the work will be an authoritative reference that will appeal to scholars studying Ireland, to medievalists in general, and to anyone interested in Ireland and in the Middle Ages. It will also be useful to people studying such related topics as Anglo-Saxon England, Norman England, or Viking Scandinavia. This one-volume work is part of the Routledge Encyclopedias of the Middle Ages series.
