Cultural History

Here you can access articles I have published on various aspects of medieval cultural history. The image you can see on this page is the opening of the Irish Sex Aetates Mundi (Six Ages of the World) text – a medieval Irish account of ‘world history’ based on the Old Testament and early Christian writers such as Orosius – as preserved in the Book of Ballymote.
