10 Oct 2019

Caitríona Ó Dochartaigh was invited by the Scandinavian Studies Department of the University of Oslo to present at a colloquium on the subject of ‘Irish, Latin and Norse metre and rhyme c. 600-1100’ which was held from 10-11 October 2019. She gave a two-hour workshop on the subject of ‘Insular Latin hymns’ which encompassed a survey of Latin metre from Classical literature to early Christian hymnody and the possible influence such sources may have had on metres used in early Irish verse.
