Volumes in the series include a broad selection of original historical documents, each with an introduction, an exact citation of source, and a concise presentation of its content, as well as short essays on historical concepts important in the period and brief biographies of major figures.

Irish names by Donnchadh Ó Corráin( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2018 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Irish Names contains just under a thousand names selected from the enourmous wealth of historical sources -- annals, genealogies, myth, legend and epic poetry -- that make up the literature of early medieval Ireland. Of the the extraordinary variety of names available to the early Irish -- some twelve thousand are recorded -- only a handful are in current use. This classic work of reference explains the background and meaning of these names, and provides a fascinating insight into the society in which they had their origin. 'This splendid work encapsulates Irish history.' -- The Irish Times

Clavis litterarum Hibernensium : Medieval Irish books & texts (c. 400 - c. 1600) by Donnchadh Ó Corráin( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work describes the whole literary and scholarly output of the whole of the Irish middle ages (4th-17th centuries), in Latin and in the vernaculars, and tries to do so as comprehensively as possible, esp. in biblica, liturgica, computistica, hagiographica and grammatica. The book focuses both on individual manuscripts and on textual transmission. In the case of manuscripts, it gives succinctly information and a detailed bibliography, always chronologically arranged. In the case of texts, it lists the manuscripts in which they occur or, on occasion, where such a list can be found, together with a bibliography of relevant publications. In the case of both, there are running cross-references to the standard works of reference. Concordantiae, at the end of the volume, reinforce that. The 'Index Manuscriptorum' is the most comprehensive attempt so far to list the MSS written by the medieval Irish or transmitting their texts. It should allow new work on the fortuna of Irish MSS and texts and their influence throughout the middle ages. The chapters on MSS and texts written in Irish provide the treatment of several areas: annals, genealogies, vernacular law, early poetry, bardic poetry and metrics.--See publisher's website
