2624 - Medieval Irish History: From St. Patrick to the Flight of the Earls
This course will explore major themes in the first millennium of Irish history, from the coming of Christianity and the “Golden Age” of the Irish Church, to the invasions of the Vikings and the English, and finally the fall of Ireland’s Gaelic civilization. Medieval Ireland was known as the "Island of Saints and Scholars", and this course will provide an entryway into the culture that produced the Book of Kells, the heroic epic Táin Bó Cúailgne (The Cattle Raid of Cooley), and Brian Ború. Suggested readings will be provided, though additional reading in the recommended books is encouraged. No prior experience of or knowledge with the subject is necessary. Lecture (plus Questions)
