Abstract

In this paper, I review the form, function, iconography, decoration and dating of the small corpus of early medieval Irish crucifixion plaques of metal, and draw on some new artistic parallels for the group. On the basis of this evidence, I attempt to fix the chronology for the plaques, which currently floats between the tenth and twelfth centuries.
