Published in association with the Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement and the American Society for Irish Medieval Studies, this exciting new book features twelve essays from an international panel of experts on religious landscapes. They explore the dynamic relationship between settlement and the church, spanning the dawn of Christianity, the Middle Ages and the post-medieval eras. Clearly written and profusely illustrated, this volume shows how, over the centuries, the church formed a core component of settlement and played a significant role in the creation of distinct cultural landscapes in Ireland.
