‘Throughout this marvellous book are myriad reference to the qualities of the man which anyone who knows Professor Colm Lennon can readily attest to. A top-class historian, a first-rate teacher, and a kind and unfailingly helpful and courteous man … the editors have done an excellent job in corralling all of the essays into a unifying whole which stands as a well-deserved tribute to one of Ireland’s leading early-modern scholars’, Brendan Scott, Breifne Journal (2017).

‘This collection marks a significant contribution to the field of early modern Irish religious, social, political, urban, and intellectual history. Its expansive coverage and high standard of scholarship are a fitting tribute to the honorand, who as Ciaran Brady points out, deservedly holds the title of ‘doyen of the historians of early modern Dublin’, Bronagh Ann McShane, Irish Theological Quarterly (2017).

‘This [volume] is an apt testimony to Colm Lennon’s scholarship, which will continue to shape our discussions of English culture in both Ireland and England', Mark A. Hutchinson, British Catholic History (2017)
