HIST 4861 Early Christian Ireland (Spring: 3 )
Among other things, this seminar will consider the sudden widespread acceptance of Christianity in 6th-century Ireland, the concomitant rise of monasticism, the great 7th-century Easter controversy, and the promulgation of the Patrick legend in the settlement of that dispute. No knowledge of Irish Gaelic required.
