This chapter offers an assessment of the unique contribution to the historiography of the Easter Rebellion of 1916 in Ireland by F. X. Martin (1922–2000), Professor of Medieval History at University College Dublin. Martin gained his position in 1962 after an arduous contest with several rivals. A medievalist, whose previous research interests had been in Early Modern Ireland and Australian history, he nonetheless intervened memorably in the as yet uncharted waters of the history of the 1916 Rebellion and its aftermath.
