Reflection Questions
  • According to your readings, where did the word sodality come from?


  • Following the lead Pierson gives, what link is there between the concept of a sodality and the impact of the Irish on the continent in the early centuries?


  • Create a drawing that represents the centripetal/centrifugal concept. Use your drawing to explain how Pierson's observation about the concept corresponds with the illustration that immediately follows his reference to the concept.


  • What objective reasons are there for Westerners to offer the world a dating system centered on the birth of Christ?
