Treasures of Irish Christianity Volume I:
People and Places, Images and Texts

This volume takes its cue from the theme of the International Eucharistic Congress to be held in Dublin in June 2012, ‘Communion with Christ and with one another’. In almost eighty short articles, a host of leading scholars from the worlds of history, liturgy, theology, philosophy, art history and Celtic Studies reflect upon aspects of the history of the Christian tradition in Ireland from the fifth to the twenty-first century, with a special emphasis on the relationship between the Irish people and the Eucharist.

This is a wide-ranging illustrated collection which draws from the major Christian denominations in Ireland and includes entries on significant people, texts, images and events that have shaped the Irish Christian experience.

Treasures of Irish Christianity Volume II:

A People of the Word

Treasures of Irish Christianity was published to great acclaim in the summer of 2012. This second volume offers readers further scholarly yet readily-accessible short articles on a vast array of treasures from the Irish Christian tradition, with a focus on the Irish and their relationship with the Word.

It covers items ranging from religious folk tales to reflections on Yeats, Joyce, Kavanagh and Beckett; from words on the margins of ancient manuscripts to the first Lutheran congregation in Dublin; from early High Crosses to the thirteenth-century Kilcormac Missal; from the Medieval Office of St Brigid to Pugin architecture; and from Church of Ireland hymnody to the recent Share the Good News publication.

Written by a large number of Irish scholars from a variety of disciplines, this second volume is also richly illustrated.

Treasures of Irish Christianity Volume III:
To the Ends of the Earth

The third volume of 'Treasures of Irish Christianity' will be published in the next few weeks, and we are also pleased to announce that we will have a limited number of box sets for sales, containing all three volumes.

This third volume of Treasures of Irish Christianity looks at ‘the Irish abroad’ from the earliest centuries to the present day, with a special emphasis on the historical contribution of Irish missionaries.

Topics include a seventeenthcentury Church of Ireland clergyman’s account of being captured by North African pirates; the Irish priest who debated with the American abolitionist John Brown before his execution in 1859; Irish military chaplains in the First World War; the Irish missionary who met Mao Tse-tung, and much more.

Treasures of Irish Christianity Volume III follows in the wake of the highly successful Treasures of Irish Christianity Volumes I and II, which were published to great acclaim in 2012 and 2013 respectively. This third volume is also richly illustrated.
