Patricia M. Rumsey
Patricia Rumsey is a Poor Clare nun with an MA and a PhD in Theology from the University of Wales, Lampeter, UK. She has written and published on liturgy and early Irish monasticism and has lectured in England, Ireland and Scandinavia.
Thomas O'Loughlin is professor of historical theology in the University of Wales, Lampeter. His research has focused on the theology of the early medieval period, and on the works of insular writers in particular.
Refreshingly lucid and meticulously researched, Patricia Rumseys book will doubtless serve as an exemplar for future studies in a field whose appeal has all too often been limited to the recipients of specialized training. More than a liturgical history, it considers the theological significance of time in early Christian worship generally and in pre-viking Ireland specifically and offers a needed corrective to some long-held misapprehensions of early Irish monasticism. It may be read with pleasure and profit by any student or scholar of early medieval religious life. Recommended.
