PERITIA, Journal of the Medieval Academy of Ireland, Volume/Vol. 4


An uncommon early number of a journal concerned with all medieval periods of Irish culture, but tending "to concentrate on the earlier middle ages, and" devoting "very considerable space to law, hagiography, palaeography, computistics, institutional history, literary history, and art and archaeology."

Dumville ("The West Saxon genealogical regnal list and the chronology of early Wessex"), Jean-Michel Picard ("Structural patterns in early Hiberno-Latin hagiography"), Michael J. Enright ("Royal succession and abbatial prerogative in Adomnán's Vita Columbae"), Michael Lapidge ("Columbanus and the Antiphonary of Bangor"), M.I. Cameron ("Aldhelm as naturalist: a re-examination of some of his Enigmata"), Neil Wright ("Imitation of the poems of Paulinus of Nola in early Anglo-Latin verse"), Richard Sharpe ("Latin and Irish words for `book-satchel'"), Paul Byrne ("The community of Clonard from the sixth to the twelfth centuries"), Aidan McDonald ("Iona's style of government: the toponomastic evidence"), K.W. Nicholls ("The charter of John, Lord of Ireland, to the Cistercian abbey of Baltinglas"), Mary Clayton ("Homiliaries and preaching in Anglo-Saxon England"), P.R. Orton ("The battle of Brunanburh: Constantine's bereavement"), Aaron Ya Gurevic ("The west portal of the church of St Lazaire in Autun: the paradoxes of the medieval mind"), Lloyd Laing ("The romanization of Ireland in the fifth century"), Ann Hamlin ("The archaeology of the early Irish churches in the eighth century" and "Archaeological survey: Donegal and elsewhere"), Rolf Baumgarten ("The kinship metaphors in 'Bechbretha' and 'Coibnes usci thairidne'"), and Michael Richter ("The European dimension of Irish history in the eleventh and twelfth centuries").
