In his 1985, survey entitled The Irish Catholic Experience, Patrick J. Corish points to 'the complexity of the patterns of culture in which Christianity existed in Ireland in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. While noting that the source material allows little more than an impressionistic survey of what was distinctive about the Christian religion inter hibernicos as against its equivalent inter anglicos. This chapter focuses on collections of devotional material in late medieval Ireland, which, for the most part, can be found in manuscripts which also contain a great deal of miscellaneous material of a non-religious nature. It considers what devotional interests both Gaelic Irish and Anglo-Norman actually shared in common as part of a wider late medieval Catholic culture. The hagiographical work of Christ's passion would be the shared religious culture of both communities leading to the construction of a common Catholic identity in the seventeenth century.
