Complete registryShow full item record
The present paper seeks to review hiberno-latin culture through its Literature. We take Adamnan's Vita Sancti Columbae as our principal referent in achieving this aim. This is a text which was written towards the end of the 7th. century and transmitted in a series of manuscripts. We also give a brief account of this text. Its main idea is focused on the influence that Ireland and its monks had on both medieval literature, written in Latin on the continent, and on European culture through the rigorious teaching of the Latin language in the school system.
