Synopsis: Scotland's first full-scale printed book is the Aberdeen Breviary, published in Edinburgh in 1510. It contains the only major collection of legends of Scottish saints. Many of the saints are of Irish origin, but the book also includes English, Welsh, Pictish, and Scandinavian saints. The Breviary of Aberdeen has not been edited for 150 years. The existing facsimile edition is rare and in places untrustworthy; it is very difficult to use, without index, translation, notes, or commentary. This edition is intended to make the material more accessible to scholars, local historians, and general readers for future research. It is a reliable edition of a fascinating collection of legends of early saints, describing the development of their cult and also their heroic struggles, self-denial, and amazing miracles, in a scholarly book with detailed introduction, text, translation, and more.

Book Description Four Courts Press Ltd, Ireland, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. `The team of scholars led by Katherine Forsyth, whose work is presented in this handsome volume, has made major strides towards interpreting the gospel-book itself and the other texts that came to be added to i. Studies on the Book of Deer is a book of fundamental importance for Scottish medieval studies . Thomas Charles-Edwards, TLS.The tenth-century illuminated gospel-book known as the `Book of Deer has been justly described as `one of the principal antiquities of Celtic Scotland . Of great historical significance in its own right, the gospel-book was used in the early twelfth century to record grants to the monastery of Deer in Aberdeenshire. These property records are the oldest surviving examples of Scottish Gaelic prose and are of unique historical and linguistic importance.In this collection of specially commissioned essays, leading scholars from a range of disciplines, including linguistics, history, archaeology, art history, and place-name studies, examine the Book of Deer, its Gaelic notes and their wider historical and cultural context. Together they throw new light on landscape and society in Gaelic Buchan and on the Church in the north-east from Pictish times to the ReformationAlso from Four Courts PressA Dictionary of Irish Saints Padraig O Riain`An important book, one that every library worthy of the name will want to have . He provides an account of every saint he has been able to trace, a thousand or so, arranged in alphabetical order. He has drawn on an amazingly wide range of sources, old lives of the saints, genealogies, calendars of feasts days and so on, and every entry is fully referenced. An index of subjects opens the lives up to many other kinds of investigation . This is a simply splendid book, which cannot be recommended highly enough to readers, for it provides an almost complete Irish hagiography . Peter Costello, The Irish Catholic.`This dictionary, the work of more than 40 years, is an extraordinary achievement.The twelfth century saw intense hagiographical activity succeeded by another trough. Production has been rather steady since the nineteenth century, but O Riain s is far and away the best book . this book offers numerous delights . This is an important research tool for specialist libraries and for scholars of the vast heritage of Ireland. Highly Recommended. E.J. Kealey, Choice. Seller Inventory # AGM9781846823329
