O Floinn, Irish Shrines & Reliquaries of the Middle Ages. O Floinn, Raghnall. Irish Shrines & Reliquaries of the Middle Ages. Dublin, Town House and Country House, 1994. 16 cm x 24 cm. 46 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

Includes the following essays: The Cult of Relics in Ireland / The Use of Relics / Types of Relics / Inscriptions / Names of Relics / Families Assoicated with Surviving Reliquaries.

″In today’s world it is difficult to imagine the power that relics, shrines and sacred images exerted over the medieval mind. The use of relics in Ireland dates to the introduction of Christianity, the earliest recorded being those of the early martyrs and saints. Some relics consisted of parts of the remains of certain ‘holy’ individuals, while others were objects used by or associated with these people during their lifetime. They were usually kept in specially made reliquaries or shrines, most of which could be carried about. Apart from their symbolic or devotional function, relics were used to effect miraculous cures, to swear oaths, as battle talismans, or were carried on circuit by clerics to promulgate the laws of a particular religious foundation. In this book Raghnall O’Floinn examines the remarkable collection of reliquaries and shrines in the National Museum of Ireland, many of which have survived centuries of destruction and damage, warfare and neglect. He traces the history of relics in Ireland, the traditions associated with them and their social and historical importance. ″ (Amazon)

Rynne, Technological Change in Anglo-Norman Munster. Rynne, Colin. Technological Change in Anglo-Norman Munster. Kinsale, Barryscourt Trust / Cork County Council / Gandon Editions, 1998. 17 cm x 24 cm. 31 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Signed by the author. [The Barryscourt Lectures III]

Includes for example the following sections: Introduction / Animal Power / Water Power / Wind Power / Grain Milling / Textiles – The Woollen Industry / Mining and Metalworking / Some Conclusions.

″The third in a series of bi-annual lectures delivered at Barryscourt Castle in Co Cork. The Anglo-Norman period in Munster can be characterised as one of remarkable economic growth. Agricultural development was advanced enough to enable the widespread use of water-powered grain mills amongst all levels of early Irish society. On the basis of the archaeological evidence for the use of water power before the Anglo-Norman settlement, Ireland could not be considered a technological backwater in the early medieval period. Yet, while Anglo-Norman settlers would have found that the native Irish were accomplished millwrights, they had their own distinctive contribution to make, laying, as they did, the seeds of future industrial development in Ireland. In this book, the author outlines the extent of Anglo-Norman settlers’ contribution to the development of industrial energy in Ireland, with special reference to the Munster area. A glossary of technical terms is provided in an appendix. “Continuing the excellent series of booklets from the Barryscourt Trust, we have here a clearly written, well-researched and beautifully illustrated paper by one of Ireland’s foremost authorities on medieval and post-medieval technology and industry … The scholar, student and interested reader alike will find this book both informative and accessible.” – Maurice F Hurley, Journal of the Cork Historical and Archaeological Society “The third lecture, by Colin Rynne, is a fine study based on the author’s own extensive research.” – Irish Historical Studies
