Crisis and recovery: Church and society in twelfth-century Ireland

Conference flyer

A conference to commemorate the 900th anniversary of the synod of Ráith Bressail (AD 1111)

The twelfth century was a period of profound change in Ireland. New ideals of political and ecclesiastical power were explored as part of the attempt to transform the Irish Church and society. This conference presents the latest research into these developments, and into the changing modes of artistic expression and patronage, concentrating on the synod of Ráith Bressail of AD 1111. Scholars will discuss these changes with special reference to the synod which utterly changed the structure of the centrally important institution of the Irish Church, changes that lasted almost a thousand years and so had an enormous impact on Irish culture, society and even identity. The conference is held under the auspices of the School of History, University College Cork, and the County Tipperary Historical Society and will take place at University College Cork and St Patrick’s College, Thurles, Co Tipperary, on 11 – 13 November 2011.
