Description

This illustrated lecture will explore the 2006 discovery of a copy of the Psalms handwritten in Ireland around the year 800 of the Common Era. Found by accident in Tipperary, this book has been carefully preserved and studied, chiefly by speaker  John Gillis, at the National Museum of Ireland. Both the object and the process of its conservation are of interest for those interested in the Bible, in Ireland, and in the history of the book.
