Pilgrimage in Ireland: The Monuments and the People (Irish Studies)

Pilgrimage in Ireland: The Monuments and the People (Irish Studies). This is a wonderful introduction to the history of pilgrimage in Ireland. Peter Harbison's book discusses the history of the Boyne Valley, the landscape, the peoples who have left their imprint on the region since pre-history, the houses and monuments, the battle sites and all the other aspects that make it such a rich source of interest. The highlight of the book is of course the three great Stone Age burial sites at Dowth, Knowth and Newgrange, all at least as old as the Egyptian pyramids, and the latter,one of the wonders of Europe.

Pilgrimage in Ireland: The Monuments and the People, Syracuse University Press (Syracuse, NY), 1992. With Homan Potterton and Jeanne Sheehy) Irish Art and Architecture from Prehistory to the Present, Thames & Hudson (New York, NY), 1993. SIDELIGHTS: Peter Harbison's interest in Ireland and its ancient architecture has resulted in numerous books on the subject, including Ancient Ireland: From Prehistory to the Middle Ages, The Golden Age of Irish Art: The Medieval Achievement, 600–1200, and The Crucifixion in Irish Art: Fifty Selected Examples from the Ninth to the Twentieth Century.

The Peoples of Ireland: From Prehistory to Modern Times. This book includes many more monuments than any other book I have found; all monuments under state (Irish government) care are included plus a selection of other monuments not in state care. My only dissatisfaction with this book is that it is too old to contain GPS/ Sat Nav coordinates. In the meantime, readers must use the map coordinates located in each entry to locate the site on the maps included in the back of the book.

Reviews:
  • Zulkishicage
I was looking for kind of a portable book to take with me to Ireland as a guide to pilgrimage sites. This was just too much information and not practical for carrying as a guide book. We left it at home.
  • watchman
Historical perspectives on an ancient practice which continues today. Well researched and written, interesting photos. A big recommended read for anyone serious about more than just the surface Irish tourism vacation.
  • Morlunn
This is a great book for anyone who plans a trip to Ireland to visit some of the ancient holy places. Harbison does an excellent job at locating these places and at giving a full - and not too long - account of the meaning and significance of the sites. He traces the origins of the places to their [frequently] pagan roots through Christian times. A helpful part of his structure is he lists each site by county and there are maps at the back of book to help find locations mentioned in the text.

Even for those not planning a trip the book is a great read and a fascinating insight into the heritage that is Ireland's countryside.
  • Hudora
This is a wonderful introduction to the history of pilgrimage in Ireland. It is accessible (and entertaining with it); it is full of facts and folklore; it has marvellous plates. It is a companionable book: I felt that I was listening to a guide who not only had the story of each particular site but could relate them to pilgrimage patterns elsewhere in Ireland and abroad. The author obviously knows and loves his subject.
Coming as I do from an ancient place of pilgrimage - the parish of Glencolmcille ("the valley of the dove of the church") in County Donegal - I had never before experienced a yearning to go on pilgrimage in any other county in Ireland, apart from the Reek/Croagh Patrick in County Mayo, but this book has given me itchy feet!
One of the many nice things about this book is the author's generous praise of other writers. Go on buy this book! You don't have to be religious or spiritual or new-agey to enjoy it!
