Fourth Glenstal History Conference

Fourth Glenstal History Conference
The Augustinian Canons and

Canonesses in Medieval Ireland


Friday 30th June – Sunday 2nd July 2017


This three-day conference explores the history and the economic, religious, liturgical, pastoral and agricultural activities of the Regular Canons and Canonesses in Ireland from their emergence during the twelfth century transformation of the Irish Church to the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the mid-sixteenth century. Although the most numerous and widespread of all the religious orders in Medieval Ireland, the Canonical movement has received relatively little scholarly attention and this interdisciplinary conference is the first to be dedicated to their activities throughout Ireland.
