Monastic Ireland - A gift of the Nile

Alf Monaghan's illustrated talk looks at the history of early Irish Christianity from a different perspective - a Mediterranean perspective - providing a tantalizing glimpse under the veil of history. It asks many questions and challenges some of the accepted theories about the history of early Christianity in Ireland.

It traces links to ancient Egypt, connects Irish monasticism with the Desert Fathers, and the early Irish Church with the Egyptian Coptic Church.

Recent Irish discoveries such as the Faddan More Psalter - Egyptian papyrus found in an ancient book of psalms from a Tipperary bog - are clues pointing to a more substantial Mediterranean influence in early Irish Christianity than has been acknowledged to date.

Alf Monaghan from Carrick-on-Shannon has spent most of his life abroad working as an Economic Adviser in Northern Europe, Central America, the Mediterranean, and Africa.

Recently, he has spent 10 years living and working in Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, Cyprus, Jordan, and Egypt. Always interested in history, his time in Syria and Egypt, in particular, sparked off a deeper interest in early Christianity and the influence of the Eastern Mediterranean / North Africa on Irish Christianity, much of which is now 'lost' or 'forgotten.'

Tickets: £11, includes refreshments and post-talk discussion.
