 Envisioning Christ on the Cross: Ireland and the early medieval West 

Juliet Mullins, Jenifer Ní Ghrádaigh & Richard Hawtree, editors

The crucifixion is at the very centre of Christian art and thought. This lavishly illustrated volume brings together leading medieval scholars from a wide range of disciplines in an assessment of its depiction in Ireland and more generally across the early medieval West. With such a narrow focus, the collection’s range is broad, with discussions of objects and texts from 4th-century Rome to 12th-century Catalonia, and serves to place Irish artistic, literary and theological representations of the crucifixion within a wider European context. For more information on this book – including a full TABLE OF CONTENTS –  please visit us online at:

Juliet Mullins is lecturer in Old English, Jenifer Ní Ghrádaigh is an art historian specializing in Insular art and architecture and Richard Hawtree researches the Latin and vernacular textual culture of the Insular world; all three are investigators with the IRCHSS-funded ‘Christ on the Cross’ project.

Now available: 400pp; large format, illustrations. Hardback. €55/£50  | ISBN 978-1-84682-387-9
