Saint Patrick Retold: The Legend and History of...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A gripping biography that brings together the most recent research to shed provocative new light on the life of Saint Patrick Saint Patrick was, by his own admission, a controversial figure. Convicted in a trial by his elders in Britain and hounded by rumors that he settled in Ireland for financial gain, the man who was to become Ireland’s patron saint battled against great odds before succeeding as a missionary. Saint Patrick Retold draws on recent research to offer a fresh assessment of Patrick’s travails and achievements. This is the first biography in nearly 50 years to explore Patrick’s career against the background of historical events in late antique Britain and Ireland. Roy Flechner examines the likelihood that Patrick, like his father before him, might have absconded from a career as an imperial official responsible for taxation, preferring instead to migrate to Ireland with his family’s slaves, who were his source of wealth. Flechner leaves no stone unturned as he takes listeners on a riveting journey through Romanized Britain and late Iron Age Ireland, and he considers how best to interpret the ambiguous literary and archaeological evidence from this period of great political and economic instability, a period that brought ruin for some and opportunity for others. Rather than a dismantling of Patrick’s reputation, or an argument against his sainthood, Flechner’s biography raises crucial questions about self-image and the making of a reputation. From boyhood deeds to the challenges of a missionary enterprise, Saint Patrick Retold steps beyond established narratives to reassess a notable figure’s life and legacy. 1. Language: English.

Ireland´s East Coast: Dublin, Louth, Wicklow & ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dublin is the Republic of Ireland´s capital and largest city, named from the Irish dubh linn, meaning ´´black pool´´. The name comes from the fact that the site of the city was formerly a black, slimy expanse of mud through which the River Liffey flowed sluggishly to the sea. It now has a pleasant setting on the east coast of the Irish Sea, looking out over Dublin Bay, with a long, sandy shoreline to its north. Granite mountains form the southern boundary of the county, and the city is bisected by the River Liffey. It´s a cultural city with theaters, cinemas, galleries and museums, and many historic sites worth seeing. It also has an excellent range of shops, restaurants, pubs, and clubs plus all types of accommodations. Louth, the smallest county on the island, is on the east coast, on the border halfway between Dublin and Belfast. It´s named after Lugh, the great god of the Celts, and its Cooley peninsula was the legendary home of the giant Finn McCool and the setting of Ulster´s greatest saga, the Táin. That´s the epic folk tale of the hero Cúchullain, the Red Branch Knights of Ulster, wicked Queen Maeve of Connaught, and the mighty Brown Bull of Cooley. Despite its size, Louth offers a great choice of activities - sailing and scuba diving, sea and river fishing, horseback riding, hill walking, rock climbing, golf, exploring historical sites, and great traditional hospitality in its many pubs, restaurants, inns, guesthouses, and hotels. Among the many interesting places to visit is the site of the Battle of the Boyne, which changed Irish history and influences events even today. Known as ´´the Garden of Ireland,´´ Wicklow has wonderful scenery, with mountains, wooded valleys, and lakes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ayelet Sror.

When the Irish Invaded Canada: The Incredible T...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An heroic and tragic story from a more innocent, less cynical era - when Irish Americans fought and died, not for profits and plunder, but for Irish democracy and freedom from the world´s most powerful empire. (Kerby Miller)´´Christopher Klein´s fresh telling of this story is an important landmark in both Irish and American history.´´ (James M. McPherson) Just over a year after Robert E. Lee relinquished his sword, a band of Union and Confederate veterans dusted off their guns. But these former foes had no intention of reigniting the Civil War. Instead, they fought side by side to undertake one of the most fantastical missions in military history: to seize the British province of Canada and to hold it hostage until the independence of Ireland was secured.By the time that these invasions - known collectively as the Fenian raids - began in 1866, Ireland had been Britain´s unwilling colony for 700 years. Thousands of Civil War veterans who had fled to the United States rather than perish in the wake of the Great Hunger still considered themselves Irishmen first, Americans second. With the tacit support of the US government and inspired by a previous generation of successful American revolutionaries, the group that carried out a series of five attacks on Canada - the Fenian Brotherhood - established a state in exile, planned prison breaks, weathered infighting, stockpiled weapons, and assassinated enemies. Defiantly, this motley group, including a one-armed war hero, an English spy infiltrating rebel forces, and a radical who staged his own funeral, managed to seize a piece of Canada - if only for three days.When the Irish Invaded Canada is the untold tale of a band of fiercely patriotic Irish Americans and their chapter in Ireland´s centuries-long fight for independence. Inspiring, lively, and often undeniably comic, this is a story of fighting for what´s right in the face of impossible odds. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Malcolm Hillgartner.

How the Irish Saved Civilization: The Untold St...
9,95 € *

The perfect St. Patrick´s Day gift and a book in the best tradition of popular history - the untold story of Ireland´s role in maintaining Western culture while the Dark Ages settled on Europe. Every year millions of Americans celebrate St. Patrick´s Day, but they may not be aware of how great an influence St. Patrick was on the subsequent history of civilization. Not only did he bring Christianity to Ireland, he instilled a sense of literacy and learning that would create the conditions that allowed Ireland to become ´´the isle of saints and scholars´´ - and thus preserve Western culture while Europe was being overrun by barbarians. In this entertaining and compelling narrative, Thomas Cahill tells the story of how Europe evolved from the classical age of Rome to the medieval era. Without Ireland, the transition could not have taken place. Not only did Irish monks and scribes maintain the very record of Western civilization - copying manuscripts of Greek and Latin writers, both pagan and Christian, while libraries and learning on the continent were forever lost - they brought their uniquely Irish world-view to the task. As Cahill delightfully illustrates, so much of the liveliness we associate with medieval culture has its roots in Ireland. When the seeds of culture were replanted on the European continent, it was from Ireland that they were germinated. In the tradition of Barbara Tuchman´s A Distant Mirror, How the Irish Saved Civilization reconstructs an era that few know about but which is central to understanding our past and our cultural heritage. But it conveys its knowledge with a winking wit that aptly captures the sensibility of the unsung Irish who relaunched civilization. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Liam Neeson.

´´If you strike us down now we shall rise again and renew the fight. You cannot conquer Ireland; you cannot extinguish the Irish passion for freedom. If our deed has not been sufficient to win freedom then our children will win it by a better deed.” -Patrick Pearse There are very few national relationships quite as complicated and enigmatic as the one that exists between the English and the Irish. For two peoples so interconnected by geography and history, the depth of animosity that is often expressed is difficult at times to understand. At the same time, historic links of family and clan, and common Gaelic roots, have at times fostered a degree of mutual regard, interdependence, and cooperation that is also occasionally hard to fathom.During World War I, for example, Ireland fought for the British Empire as part of that empire, and the Irish response to the call to arms was at times just as enthusiastic as that of other British dominions such as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. And yet, at the same time, plots were unearthed to cooperate with the Germans in toppling British rule in Ireland, which would have virtually ensured an Allied defeat. In World War II, despite Irish neutrality, 12,000 Irish soldiers volunteered to join the Khaki line, returning after the war to the scorn and vitriol of a great many of their more radical countrymen. One of the most bitter and divisive struggles in the history of the British Isles, and in the history of the British Empire, played out over the question of Home Rule and Irish independence, and then later still as the British province of Northern Ireland grappled within itself for the right to secede from the United Kingdom or the right to remain.What is it within this complicated relationship that has kept this strange duality of mutual love and hate at play? A rendition of ´´Danny Boy” has the power to reduce both Irishmen and Englishmen to tears, and yet they have torn at one another 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman.
