Culture and Conflict in Seventeenth-century France and Ireland
This collection of essays, assembled to celebrate the acquisition of the Geoffrey Aspin collection of 17th-century books by TCD, focuses on the theme of conflict to provide an insight into a range of 17th-century topics, notably Franco-Irish and Franco-English relations, drama, prose, theology, politics and medical ethics. Various chapters illustrate the way in which politics and science influence literature, religion informs medical practice, literary and cultural tastes affect translation. Others examine Restoration Dublin and the military alliances formed between France and Ireland against William of Orange.
