Studies in the literature and culture of medieval Ireland
in honour of Máire Herbert
John Carey, Kevin Murray & Caitríona Ó Dochartaigh, editors
Sacred Histories is a collection of essays that focuses primarily on the textual culture of Ireland (in Latin and Irish) in its historical context from the medieval to the modern. Contributions engage with these issues across numerous genres such as poetry, saga, hagiography, apocrypha, ‘historical tales’, and the literary portrayal of women; such sustained interrogation results in numerous fresh insights and new perspectives. The contributors to this volume are among the foremost experts in their disciplines.
John Carey is Professor of Early and Medieval Irish, University College Cork. Kevin Murray and Caitríona Ó Dochartaigh both lecture in the Department of Early and Medieval Irish, University College Cork.
Forthcoming November 2015. 352pp; Hardback. ISBN 978-1-84682-564-4
