In the history of Norman monasteries founded in Ireland, the Benedictine priory of Fore stands apart. While many foundations were independent entities and others were cells or priories of English foundations, Fore was a cell of the French monastery of St. Taurin , Evreux, in Normandy. As such, it was one of only two alien priories in Ireland in medieval times - the other was in Ards, Co. Down. While the kings of England were still dukes of Normandy, the priory was considered their own property. As conflict between England and France grew, the priory came to be seen as alien property and, by the 14th century, was considered 'French,' resulting in its seizure by the English crown. By the early 15th century, the priory had become the property of the local gentry of the region. This books charts the rise and fall of the priory and the surrounding area of Fore in the medieval period. All history is local and yet history is not all local. The story of the priory at Fore is not just the story of what happened locally, but also of how far distant events, such as the Great Western Schism and the Hundred Years War, impinged into the very recesses of medieval Ireland.

This is the first book devoted to churches in Ireland dating from the arrival of Christianity in the fifth century to the early stages of the Romanesque around 1100, including those built to house treasures of the golden age of Irish art, such as the Book of Kells and the Ardagh chalice. � Carrag�in's comprehensive survey of the surviving examples forms the basis for a far-reaching analysis of why these buildings looked as they did, and what they meant in the context of early Irish society. � Carrag�in also identifies a clear political and ideological context for the first Romanesque churches in Ireland and shows that, to a considerable extent, the Irish Romanesque represents the perpetuation of a long-established architectural tradition.

Catholic Revival in the North of Ireland 1603 41

The resurgence of the Catholic Church is central to the religious history of early modern Ireland. Covering the crucial years between its post-war trauma in 1603, to its vigorous condition by the 1641 rising, this book explores that process within the ecclesiastical province of Armagh, embracing both Ulster and the northern Pale. Northern Irish resentment at the structures of the Church of Ireland throws light on Catholic success in plantation Ulster. Continentally-trained priests, secular and religious, contributed much to the revival, but they faced considerable opposition from traditionalist clergy. In the Pale, the close alliance of these clergy with the landed and urban Ã?Â?Ã?Â(c)lites enabled the Catholic community to withstand the state's religious coercion which was prevalent down to about 1620. Thereafter, building on educationalÃ?Â?Ã?Â?links with the Continent established since the 1590s, the Catholic Church, although living with the internal tension between older and newer strands, was able to adopt a more vibrant and assertive role.
