Book Description:
Early medieval Irish fine metalwork is generally agreed to be one of the high points of achievement in European decorative arts. In the corpus of finds from the 7th to the 10th centuries are many masterpieces of the goldsmith's art some are personal ornaments, many are objects made for the service of the Church. The corpus of metalwork has been greatly expanded in recent years by new finds and by re examination of older discoveries and major international exhibitions have won a new understanding of the significance of this material. A series of papers by Michael Ryan recording many new finds and analysing their significance are republished in this volume. Dr. Ryan, formerly Keeper of Irish Antiquities at the National Museum of Ireland, is Director of the Chester Beatty Library and Honorary Professor in the Department of Art History, Trinity College, Dublin.
