    1. A good introduction to the promised topic from Ecclesiastical and secular sources, documented, with a good method and critical analysis. Engaging. I just wish I knew more in general, but it's one of these little gems to get a quick overview of medieval Irish literature. I guess it's my turn to read Julius Caesear and St. Bede the Venerable now.
