Excerpt from The Holy Scriptures in Ireland One Thousand Years Ago: Selections From the Würtzburg Glosses

The Commentary from which the following selections are taken is preserved in the University (formerly the Cathedral) library of Würtzburg, in Germany, where it has been from time immemorial. Nothing is known of the person by whom, or the time at which, it was brought there; but as Würtzburg was frequented by Irish ecclesiastics in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and its monastery was of Irish foundation, there is little doubt that the manuscript was brought from Ireland by one of the many pilgrims who passed over to the Continent: and he happily placed it in the safe depository where it still remains. It contains a Latin version of St. Paul's Epistles, with Irish glosses or comments written between the lines of the text and round the margin, as shown in the facsimile. They terminate at Hebrews vii. 5. The manuscript has no date, but the language of the glosses is pronounced by competent authority to be of the eighth or the beginning of the ninth century. How early this is may be judged from a few historical facts. Charlemagne was probably reigning at Aix-la-Chapelle, or at least he could not have been long in his grave; Alfred of England had not yet ascended the throne; two centuries or more had to elapse before the consummation of the great schism between the Churches of the East and West, and more than three before the Anglo-Norman conquest of Ireland.
