Exhibition on An Cathach – earliest Irish manuscript

March 1, 2021 - March 31, 2021

To mark the 1500th anniversary of the birth of St Colm Cille, the Royal Irish Academy Library have curated a new online exhibition which can be seen here. The Royal Irish Academy Library carries a wealth of Columban manuscript material. The Cathach is the oldest extant Irish manuscript of the Psalter. The surviving portion of the manuscript contains a Vulgate version of Psalms XXX (10) to CV (13) with an interpretative rubric or heading before each psalm. It is written in Latin.

The exhibition will be followed by a major lecture series from August to September 2020. https://www.ria.ie/cathach-psalter-st-columba”
