Editorial Reviews


"A comprehensive survey of early-medieval Ireland..." Speculum

"Charles-Edwards presents a first rate history of early Christian Ireland and the Irish at home, in Britain, France, and Italy, ranging from Patrick to the coming of Viking fleets...Required reading for serious students of Irish history." Religious Studies Review

"...this book has set a high standard for the contention." Albion

"Charles-Edwards....has written THE book on Ireland between the fourth and ninth centuries. [He] deftly blends extensive recent scholarhsip with perceptive analses of notoriously difficult narrative, legal, literary, and epigraphic texts. This rich book is a must-have for all those who teach and do research on Europe's early Middle Ages." HISTORY: Reviews of New Books

Book Description

This is the first fully-documented history of Ireland and the Irish from Saint Patrick to the Vikings. It is the first fully-documented history of Ireland in the period--other books cover either a longer period (up to the Anglo-Norman conquests) or do not indicate in detail the evidence on which they are based. The book opens with the Irish raids and settlements in Britain, and the conversion of Ireland to Christianity, and ends as Viking attacks on Ireland accelerated in the second quarter of the ninth century.
