Abstract

The article is devoted to the semantic content of concept “Irish/Hibernicus” in John Lynch’s “Cambrensis Eversus” (1662). In polemic with Gerald of Wales and the English/British tradition of representation of Ireland, Lynch constructed his own view on Irish. Lynch refuted the connotations of barbarism existed in intellectual discourse associated with Irish customs, religion and the rebelliousness of the Irish. Also, Lynch rejected the ethno-cultural division of the Irish community and united under the term “Irish/Hibernii” all the inhabitants of the island (Gaels and Anglo-Irish/Old English).
