Glendalough: City of God

This book is based on lectures given to the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland.

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."
