Age of Atrocity

Violence and Political Conflict in Early Modern Ireland

Edited by: Padraig Lenihan, Clodagh Tait, David Edwards

This book examines one of the bloodiest epochs in Irish history. Part one covers the 16th century, revealing how efforts by the Tudor monarchy to curb the powers of the autonomous Irish lords degenerated into a bitter cultural and sectarian conflict characterized by summary killings and massacres. The second part pays particular attention to the 1641~rebellion and the Confederate Wars.
