About The Alan Bruford Lecture - Fenian Heroes at Sea
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Already in some of the earliest surviving traces of the Fenian heroic tradition in medieval Irish literature, in similarly early references to historical Fianna, and in later Gaelic romance and folktale, there is the notion of travel across the sea. While heroes often undertake adventures abroad in other heroic story cycles, in this presentation we will consider the special significance of Fionn and his men in the maritime context.
With Prof. Joseph Nagy.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Alan Bruford Lecture - Fenian Heroes at Sea are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
