Best Irish history

by Charles S on Jun 23, 2011

This is a wonderful scholarly work, describing how Irish monks managed to acquire and copy texts from the acient world. These became the basis of the renewal of learning in Europe at the start of the Middle ages. Remarkable is the inclusion of Roman and Greek references. Thoroughly enjoyed the book, and gave a copy to my best friend.
