Irish Jesuit Annual Letters, 1604–1674 is a two-volume publication that uses letters held in the Jesuit archives both in Rome (ARSI) and in Dublin. The letters were written at a time when some 20 Jesuits were missioned to Ireland, running “houses in towns and cities across the island as well as embarking on frequent preaching expeditions.” The missionaries’ letters recount in great detail the “conditions in Ireland during one of its most violent and turbulent centuries.” Readers of Moynes’ translations will find “first-hand accounts of plague in Clonmel, famine in Connacht, massacre in Drogheda, exorcisms and and miracles across the whole island.”
