The book of the Skelligs /
edited by John Crowley and John Sheehan ; photography, Valerie O'Sullivan.
|Summary:||"The Book of the Skelligs explores Ireland's most dramatic and beautiful Atlantic islands. It focuses particularly on Skellig Michael, the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site. It considers why the construction of a remarkable monastic site near the peak of this island over a thousand years ago stands as one of the most remarkable achievements in the history of Christianity. The Book of the Skelligs combines different approaches to deepening our understanding of the islands, combining the perspectives of history, archaeology, cultural geography, oral tradition, literature and natural science"-- |
