ADFAS Interest Day Tom Duncan speaking about "Art and Architecture of Ireland"
Saturday 19 October 2019
These two lectures of one hour each, will begin with an examination of the early Christian period, a world which produced the greatest religious works of art in manuscripts such as the Book of Kells and metalwork such as the Ardagh Chalice. The later Middle Ages saw England's direct involvement in Ireland and the effect of this relationship will be studied as more sophisticated buildings were introduced by the Normans from the late twentieth century. Morning tea is included.
