Conference Space, Nano Nagle Place
Cork DFAS Lecture Programme in partnership with Nano Nagle Place
The late medieval tomb sculpture of Kilkenny and Tipperary represents a ‘petrification’ of the bonds of family and affinity at the turn of the sixteenth century. This was a time of significant social and political change, and we can read in the tomb sculpture and architecture of the period a desire to ‘carve out’ a place in history for Kilkenny’s leading families. This Talk will bring together art, architectural, social, and political history to bring this wonderful sculpture and architecture to life.
