Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages

Ireland and the English World in the Late Middle Ages By Brendan Smith
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan 2009-05-15 | 256 Pages | ISBN: 0230542891 | PDF | 1.2 MB

This volume extends the 'British Isles' approach pioneered by Robin Frame and Rees Davies to the later middle ages. Through examination of issues such as frontier formation, colonial identities and connections with the wider world it explores whether this period saw the bonds between the British Isles weaken, strengthen, or simply alter.

Ireland remained part of the king of England’s territories in the late Middle Ages, but effective royal control was reduced by native resistance and by the loosening of ties with the colonial aristocracy. As the energy and attention of the English came to focus on their war with France, within the British Isles, the Scots strengthened their independence while the colonists in Ireland tried to persuade the king that the country was on the point of being lost forever. How close to the truth was this assertion? How deep were English roots in late medieval Ireland? As part of this wider British Isles, and of English royal territories that also included Gascony and for a time Normandy, how did Ireland fare in centuries that saw not only plague and economic contractions, but also the hardening of national sentiments?
