A descriptive and analytical catalogue of Latin glossing in Irish manuscripts

This project will shed new light on the Latin literary tradition in early medieval Ireland by undertaking first full evaluation of the extent and nature of glossing in early Irish manuscripts in the period from c. AD 700 to 900, including the activities of Irish-trained scholars working abroad. The result will be a full descriptive catalogue of glossed Irish manuscripts (in both Latin and Old Irish), based on the corpus of manuscripts established in Manuscripts with Irish Associations.

This research is a component of the IRC Laureate-funded project GLOSSAM (Global and Local Scholarship on Annotated Manuscripts).
