Monday

Event- Beyond the Book of Kells A Wycliffite Psalter

Location- Trinity Long Room Hub, Fellows Square, Trinity College Dublin

Description- This lecture is part of a series entitled “Beyond the Book of Kells: The stories of eight other medieval manuscripts from the library of Trinity College Dublin.”

In this talk Dr Niamh Patwell from UCD will discuss TCD MS 70: A Wycliffite Psalter. The rejection of Latin as the language of religion in favour of vernaculars in the 1960s is well known; attempts to convey the word of God in English in the fourteenth century will be less familiar. TCD 70, with its basic instructional works introducing the fundamental tenets of the Christian faith and text of the Psalms in English, represents just such an early attempt to democratise access to scripture, at a time when there was the danger such activity would be condemned as heretical.

Cost- Free

Time- 19.00-20.00

Children’s Event- Seasonal Activity Sheet- Spring Into Action! (more dates)

Wednesday

Event- Death Fears The Irish

Location- The Harbour Bar, Bray (not technically Dublin yes but close enough to share if the events are good!)

Description- It is said that we all must face death, and it is the fear of death that is the most profound of fears. We spend our whole lives denying it, distracting ourselves from it, and pretending that it won’t happen to us. We’ve built civilisations and religions around the idea of eternal life, whether of the body or of the soul. It is one of the great driving forces of the human experience.

So why is it, then, that the warriors of Old Ireland seemed to have no fear of death? Why did they throw themselves into situations they could not possibly survive? How was it that they went to their deaths exuberant, triumphant, even laughing?

Join us in the cold weeks of January as we warm the soul with tales of old, and learn why it is that Irish heroes do not fear death: but Death fears the Irish!

Cost- Free 

Time- 20.00-22.00
