Noting the distinction of the Irish in early medieval Europe as a culture that, never having been conquered by the Roman Empire could accept Roman cultural influences on their own terms, 11 essays from an international colloquium at Utrecht University (no date noted) explore various aspects of Ireland's identity as separate from and part of Europe. Literacy and orality, the gender of day, manuscript production, and models of conversion are among the topics. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
