242. Institutsseminar: Bernard Meehan (Trinity College Dublin Medieval History Research Centre) – Cutbercht, his Gospels (ÖNB MS 1224) and named scribes (20.01.2020)
Am Montag, dem 20. Jänner 2020, findet ab 17.15 Uhr im Elise-Richter-Saal im Hauptgebäude der Universität Wien das 242. Institutsseminar des Instituts für Österreichische Geschichtsforschung statt. Es spricht Bernard Meehan (Trinity College Dublin Medieval History Research Centre) zum Thema:
Cutbercht, his Gospels (ÖNB MS 1224) and named scribes
The Cutbercht Gospels (ÖNB MS 1224), taking its name from a colophon in which the scribe Cutbercht begs for prayers, is a late 8th-century copy of the Gospels, along with the usual preliminary texts including decorated canon tables. It was probably made at Salzburg. Perhaps a little neglected by scholars, it stands comparison, in terms of its large-format, its artistic impact and its complexity, with more celebrated manuscripts within the corpus of Insular gospel-books.
Last June, I had the opportunity, thanks to the kindness of Dr Andreas Fingernagel, to spend a day in its company. This illustrated talk will draw attention to its organisational and codicological features. Questioning the accepted view that Cutbercht was its only scribe, I shall place the Cutbercht Gospels in the context of other Insular manuscripts.
Die Veranstaltung ist wie alle Institutsseminare öffentlich, Gäste sind herzlich willkommen. Die Einladung im PDF-Format finden Sie hier.
