Understanding the Universe in Seventh-Century Ireland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scarcity of scientific data, a real interest in the physical world, and the need to validate the scriptures encouraged seventh-century Irish scholars toward critical reflection on scientific matters. Their world-view was based on materials drawn from the Bible, on earlier Christian works and on personal reflection and contemplation.

MARINA SMYTHis librarian of the Medieval Institute at the University of Notre Dame, and teaches early medieval cultural history.
