Glendalough is one of the most enchanting archaeological and monastic sites in Ireland. Yet for all its familiarity, the complex retains a serenity that signals a special place outside the concerns of this world - a City of God. This book breaks new ground by considering the site in this light. For the first time, the entirety of the complex is explored - its archaeology, history, liturgy, and intellectual concerns - and a clear picture emerges of the highly developed society which has left us a profoundly beautiful "City of God." This book is based on lectures given to the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland.
