This is a study of three important late medieval collections of saints' Lives. The manuscripts, written in Latin and, for the most part, relating to the lives of Irish saints, have never before been subject to critical examination. The book addresses such questions as when and where the Lives were compiled, and from what sources they derive. It sets its own treatment of the collections within. This is a list of the saints of Ireland, which attempts to give an overview of saints from Ireland or venerated in Ireland.. The vast majority of these saints lived during the 4th–10th centuries, the period of early Christian Ireland, when Celtic Christianity produced many missionaries to Great Britain and the European continent. For this reason, Ireland in a 19th-century adage is described. But already by the middle of the 8th century the native language had largely displaced it all over Ireland as a medium for religious thought, for homilies, for litanies, books of devotion, and the lives of saints. We find the Irish language used in a large religious literature, much of which is native, some of which represents lost Latin. A study of three important late medieval collections of saints' lives.

Medieval Ireland produced a great quantity of hagiographical documents. Today, more than one hundred Latin Lives of about sixty Irish saints are known. Some of these survive only in Continental manuscripts, but the majority are known from three great compilations of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. This book investigates the sources available to the compilers of the three collections. This book is a study of three important late medieval collections of saints' lives. The manuscripts, written in Latin and, for the most part, relating to the lives of Irish saints, have never before been subject to critical examination. Sharpe's pioneering analysis examines such questions as when and where the lives were compiled, and from what sources they derive. This book opens up discussion on the liturgical music of medieval Ireland by approaching it from a multidisciplinary, European perspective. In so doing, it challenges received notions of an idiosyncratic ‘Celtic Rite’, and of the prevailing view that no manuscripts with music notation have survived from the medieval Irish Church.
