Irish kings and high-kings by F. J Byrne ( Book )

"Irish Kings and High-Kings is an analysis of the nature of early Irish kingship. Using annalistic and genealogical material to interpret Irish saga and legend Professor Byrne examines the unique blend of pagan tribalism and Christian monasticism which characterizes the political landscape of early Ireland, exploring the nature of the traditional Five Fifths of Ireland, the mythology of Tara, and the growth of the high-kingship of Ireland. Numerous maps and genealogical tables illustrate the development of the great over-kingships of Ulster, Leinster, Connacht, and Cashel. The confrontation of St. Patrick with the Irish kings, the relations between St. Colum Cille and his royal cousins, and the ecclesiastical politics of Armagh, Kildare and Clonmacnoise are described and analysed."--BOOK JACKET
