Joint launch at Irish Historic Settlement Conference
Saturday 30 March | 7pm | City Assembly House, 58 William Street, Dublin 2
The Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement and Four Courts Press are pleased to announce a joint launch, to take place during the Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement 50th Anniversary Conference, 1969–2019. Church and settlement in Ireland, edited by James Lyttleton and Matthew Stout, and Religion, landscape and settlement in Ireland: from Patrick to present by Kevin Whelan will be launched on the evening. David Dickson, Professor Emeritus, Trinity College Dublin, will launch both volumes.
Church and settlement in Ireland explores the dynamic relationship between settlement and the church, spanning the dawn of Christianity, the Middle Ages and the post-medieval world. Religion, landscape and settlement in Ireland blends insights of historical geography, archaeology and history to trace the interplay among religion, landscape and settlement patterns, viewing them as integral elements in Irish history.
