Sinopsis: Vol 1 of Treasures of Irish Christianity was published to great acclaim in the summer of 2012. This second, richly illustrated, volume offers readers further scholarly yet readily accessible short articles on a vast array of treasures from the Irish Christian tradition. It covers items ranging from religious folk tales to reflections on Yeats, Joyce, Kavanagh and Beckett; from words on the margins of ancient manuscripts to the first Lutheran congregation in Dublin; from early high crosses to the thirteenth-century Kilcormac Missal; from the Medieval Office of St Brigid to Pugin architecture; and from Church of Ireland hymnody to the recent Share the Good News publication.
'This book, like its predecessor, cannot be recommended too highly. Both of them together would provide every household that obtains them with a sense of a vital new engagement, not just with the past and the present, but with a future for religion that is ours to make today'.
- Peter Costello, The Irish Catholic, 8 August 2013
'This volume wears its heart on its sleeve and it does what it sets out to do. It celebrates Irish Christian belief, tradition and practice over almost 1,600 years. It can be read with pleasure both for its cultural and confessional content'
- Michael Ryan, The Irish Times, 4 January 2014
'An attractive compendium of short essays on a huge range of topics written by a variety of experts; the organising principle is the written word in Irish Christianity from antiquity to the present'
- History Ireland
'For this reader, the most arresting contribution so far was Tomás O'Sullivan's presentation of a very rich and moving early Irish reflection on Christ's passion by way of commentary on Mark's gospel, closely followed by Kevin O'Gorman's piece on the sacramental imagination of Patrick Kavanagh, and Donal McMahon's on the poems of the young Daveron Hanna who because of cerebral palsy had to struggle so valiantly to express his own words'.
