Overview

This collection of articles by leading scholars focuses on Irish writing in Latin in the Renaissance and aims to rewrite Irish cultural history through recovery and analysis of Latin sources. This book renders accessible for the first time the vastly important Irish contribution to the counter-reformation, to European Renaissance and baroque literature in Latin and to the intellectual culture of European Latinity. The ethnic, cultural and religious divisions within Ireland produced a divided Latin writing and reading community.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This collection of essays is an important contribution to Neo-Latin studies, and has a full scholary apparatus of notes and references."

"This important book uncovers an Ireland of confident aristocrats and intellectuals, effective combatants in one or another war of words, not starving and dispossed peasants. For that reason alone, it would be a valuable contribution to the history of Ireland in the context of its immediate neighbors, but it also sheds a flood of light on Ireland's interrelations with other European countries."
