Irish Franciscan Publications in Prague in the seventeenth century

A Book

The recently published fourth volume of the Irish in Europe series, entitled The Ulster Earls in Baroque Europe: the Irish in Europe 1600-1800 features an important piece by Hedvika Kucharova and Jan Parez on Irish Franciscan publications preserved in the Strahov Library, Prague.

This piece presents an overview of the Irish Franciscan printed material in the Strahov collection. It also treats of the library's extensive collection of manuscript class notes taken down by students during classes delivered by Irish Franciscans scholars. The illustration, reproduced with the kind permission of the Strahov authorities, is taken from a set of seventeenth-century class notes.
