Abstract: The first survey of Island Monasteries in Ireland dates back to 1891 when George T. Stokes, Irish ecclesiastical historian published results of field trips to “Island Monasteries in Wales and Ireland” in the Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland. Inspired by Gabriela Signori, host of this International conference on the monastic island of Reichenau at Lake Constance in January 2017, the plan to provide an up-to-date survey took shape. Of course we expected a significant number of island monasteries in Ireland, itself famous as “Isle of the Saints” (Lisa Bitel). Thus the Research project was started with great expectations. However, the results amply exceeded all expectations by far: Over 100 monastic islands in Ireland could be identified so far. The first results of this research project are presented here in the conference proceedings as an annotated “List of Medieval Religious Houses on Islands in Ireland”.
