Abstract
  • The Liber Hymnorum, IE TCD MS 1441, c. 1000, is a compilation of hymns and devotional texts in Irish and in Latin. Books of hymns are known from the earliest period of the Irish church, the most significant being the late seventh-century Antiphonary of Bangor. The collection in the Liber Hymnorum is antiquarian rather than liturgical, each text accompanied by explanatory notes and glosses. Some of the hymns (without musical notation) dedicated to Patrick, Brigit and Colum Cille, date as far back as the sixth and seventh centuries. The Latin texts are written in a rounded majuscule, while the Irish texts are in angular minuscule. Bound for the Library by Roger Powell in alum tawed pigskin and oak boards.Please see the Manuscripts & Archives Research Library’s catalogue entry for the manuscript here:https://manuscripts.catalogue.tcd.ie/CalmView/Record.aspx?src=CalmView.Catalog&id=IE+TCD+MS+1441&pos=1
