The Eucharist in Pre-Norman Ireland

Details

In addition to reassessing the available texts for the liturgy of the Eucharist in the pre-Norman Irish church this study considers the social dimension of the Eucharist, its treatment in art and architecture, and its treatment as reflected by the spirituality of the time. Most importantly, O'Donoghue shows that pre-Norman Ireland was very much a part of the Western (Gallican) liturgical tradition; he argues that what we know of the Eucharist in Ireland must be integrated with our knowledge and study of the Eucharist in the rest of western Europe in order to understand its central role in the West.
