'Early Christian Ireland is a considerable achievement; it should be essential reading for students and scholars for many years to come.' The Innes Review 'There is a wealth of data ... Charles-Edwards is an expert guide whom even the uninitiated might follow and chapters can be enjoyed selectively. This book is a model of source criticism and must now become a standard reference.' Church Archaeology '... closely argued, high quality research ... Charles-Edwards ... is able to lead his readers through quite complex territory without sacrificing clarity.'
