The Insular Gospel Books transcription project plans to make full electronic transcriptions of all of the the manuscripts of Latin Gospels copied in Irish script.

Using the latest digital tools, the transcriptions created by this project will enable visitors to read and compare the texts of these remarkable manuscripts. In addition, scholars will be able to use the data to shed light on the tradition the Gospels in Ireland from earliest times until around the twelfth century.

A list of these, with links to images and full-text transcriptions are found on the Manuscripts tab above. The Bibliography tab gives details of relevant publications in this field.
