John Hunt : The Man, The Medievalist, The Connoisseur

by Brian O'Connell

The book tells for the first time the remarkable life story of John Hunt, one of the world's greatest medievalists and someone whose legacy to Ireland lives on today with most of the major cultural attractions in the Shannon region including Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and the Hunt Museum, owing their existence to either his initiative or generosity.

Details of his family background are also provided which differ greatly from those previously published. O'Connell investigates the Nazi profiteering claims made by the Simon Wiesenthal Centre (SWC). Hugely damaging to John Hunt's reputation, O'Connell examines evidence that leads him to refute these allegations.

This biography brings together a host of information about one of the most remarkable figures in the 20th century art scene, who collected treasures can be found in some of the world's major museums.
