Educational Programme: History (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 7

Year of Graduation: 2020

This study examines how Irish officials and intellectuals described the Irish in administrative documents and treatises from the reign of Elizabeth Tudor. The purpose of this work is to contextualize the image of the "Irish" in administrative documents and treatises of the Elizabethan era. The novelty of the study is defined by the fact that in modern historiography, the documents of officials and treatises have not been studied enough, since researchers focus more on the ethnographic literature. As a result, peculiarity of the description of the “Irish” at the administrative level has not been specified. The study has identified and characterized the main criteria for the “barbarism” and “savagery” of the Irish, described in the examined sources, and highlighted how social-political context and intellectual context defined peculiarity of the image of the “Irish”.
