Description

Who didn’t read and love Sherlock Homes as teenagers?

Dublin based independent historian and author Jane Stanford, presents:


Moriarty Unmasked: Conan Doyle and an Anglo-Irish Quarrel


Arthur Conan Doyle, best known for the Sherlock Holmes stories, was of Irish descent, describing himself as an Anglo-Celt. Born in Scotland, he made his home in England but he visited Ireland often and numbered among his close friends the Irish literary and political giants of the age. Actively involved with a resolution of the Irish Question, Doyle explores in his fiction the inherent obstacles to peace. His creation, Professor Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes’ arch-enemy, embodies the Fenian threat at the very heart of the British Empire.
