Medieval Irish Saints' Lives

Richard Sharpe

Oxford University Press

In his discussion of the Oxford collection, Revd Charles Plummer refers to ten texts where the recension of S is identical with that in O. Characteristically, he lists the Irish saints in alphabetical order: Baithéne, Ciarán of Saigir, Coemgen, Colmán of Dromore, Comgall, Fintán alias Munnu, Moling, Molua, Senán, and Tigernach. Plummer lists texts where S and O cover much the same ground, but show another recension. The Lives he mentions in this connexion are those of SS. Aed mac Bricc, Ailbe, Cainnech, Ciarán of Clonmacnoise, Colmán Elo, Columba of Terryglas, Finán, Finnian of Clonard, Fintán of Clonenagh, Flannán, Fursu, Maedóc, and Ruadán. The qualifications added in the footnotes remove the impression that this second list consists of texts which all exhibit a similar relationship to one another. One of the extant manuscripts of O was written before the S-collection was assembled.
