At one level, it deals with what might be called, in devotional terms, a long nineteenth century. The collection is divided into three parts. The first is composed of five essays that explore the theme of spiritual and devotional renewal in Norway, Ireland, Italy, and France. The second part examines questions pertaining to devotional culture in the arts, with specific studies related to aspects of sacred music, iconography, and architecture.

Patricks College, Thurles, Ireland, which culminated in an international conference on The Material Culture of Catholic Devotion, c.1850-c.1950 in January 2008
