The Celtic West and Europe: Studies in Celtic Literature and the Early Irish Church
The particularities of early medieval Ireland may have less to do with the 'Celticity' of its inhabitants than with a certain paradox in its geographical setting. The studies range from the early epic tradition of Celtic Britain and Ireland via the voyage and vision literature and the legal material to the conversion of the Germanic peoples in Britain and the Lower Rhine region.
