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 explores memory and monastic culture. Papers cover: the archaeology of the Irish monastery of Toureen Peakaun from the Age of Bede (Ó Carragáin); an assessment of Irish exegesis from this period (O'Brien); and an examination of the Middle Irish translation of Bede and Ireland's Pseudo-history (Ní Mhaonaigh).
