Gaelic, Catholic and European: Irish Priests and Irish Colleges of Continental Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper examines the role that Irish churchmen played in the cultivation of inherited traditional Irish secular learning or 'seanchas' from c. AD 600 until c. 1750. In immersing themselves in the study of grammar, metrics, history, prose literature, topography, law, medicine, and astronomy through the medium of the Irish language, the Irish clergy, both secular and regular, made an enormous contribution to the formation of Irish cultural and national identity.
