The beautifully wrought Ardagh and Derrynaflan chalices are among the best known artefacts of Irish archaeology. This scholarly but readable and colourful photo-essay puts such treasures into context for the general reader and the student. It explains the historical background, with special emphasis on the central role of the Mass in early Christian worship in Ireland and Europe, and goes on to describe the rich heritage of communion vessels from this period.
