Description

Medieval Irish monasticism was always an international affair. Whether inspired or directly influenced by Egyptian monasticism, the very early monasteries shared undisputed similarities with the desert monasteries (Follett). Many of these early monasteries have vanished, and a toponymic analysis may help in identifying their distribution (Ó Broin). Within several generations of conversion Irish monks were carrying the Christian message abroad again, and many of their texts are still to be found in the libraries of Continental monasteries (Ambrose).
