Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement Conference

Church and Settlement in Ireland: landscape, life and legacy

27 February - 1 March 2015

Together with The American Society for Irish Medieval Studies, the Group for the Study of Irish Historic Settlement are co-hosting a thematic interdisciplinary conference on church and settlement in Ireland, looking at the profound impact that various religious institutions had on society. The early monastic establishments, the dioceses and parishes in the Middle Ages, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation in the early modern era, and the rise of the Catholic Church and the dis-establishment of the Church of Ireland in the nineteenth century have all left their mark on the development of culture and landscape on this island.
