Centre for Neo-Latin Studies

The Centre is an interdisciplinary group which has as its goal the study of Renaissance Latin literature and scholarship from c.1400 to c.1750. For information on the authors and texts we study see our Finding List.

The Centre was established at University College Cork in July 1999 by Keith Sidwell, John Barry and Hiram Morgan.

The research of scholars at the Centre is primarily directed towards the study of Irish writing in Latin. This work forms the basis of our weekly seminar. This focus of this year's seminar is Robert O'Connell's Historia Missionis Hibernicae Fratrum Minorum Capucinorum (c.1656). This text is being translated as part of the Historia Project.

The Centre supports a cohort of graduate researchers and welcomes applications from students wishing to pursue studies in UCC.
