Description

From majestic Celtic crosses to elaborate knotwork designs, visual symbols of Irish identity at its most medieval abound in contemporary culture. Consdering both scholarly and popular perspectives this book offers a commentary on the blending of pasts and presents that finds permanent visualization in these contemporary signs.

"Icons of Irishness from the Middle Ages to the Modern World may seem to be a relatively brief study, but it is not one to be taken lightly . . . Williams offers a fascinating and illuminating study of the construction of an ethnic identity that links medieval models to the more recent past and the present." - The Medieval Review
