This chapter examines art-historical classification and style-dating and evaluates their applications in establishing the connections between Ireland and Anglo-Saxon England during the seventh century. It describes the animals and plants in Christian objects and suggests that they are variants of the Germanic Animal Style II defined by Bernhard Salin. The chapter also argues that these objects reflect the relationships between the Anglo-Saxon and Irish ruling elites.

Keywords:   art-historical classification, style-dating, Ireland, Anglo-Saxon England, Christian objects, Germanic Animal Style, Bernhard Salin, ruling elites
