Abstract

Building on sessions which have run consecutively at the IMC since 2011, this year three panels are proposed on the subject of ‘Ireland in the Age of Bede’. This panel focuses on manuscript culture. Papers cover: examination of Gospel prefatory material in Hiberno-Latin and Anglo-Saxon manuscripts (Mullins); the significance of an unnoticed Irish gloss in the Ars Ambrosiana (O’Rorke); and the transmission of Irish computistical sources to Northumbria and the Venerable Bede (Ó Cróinín).
