Dry-Point Glosses in Irish Manuscripts

Abstract : The paper provides a survey and discussion of the evidence for dry-point glossing in an Irish context. The survey comprises manuscripts produced by Irish scribes containing glosses written by either Irish or continental scribes as well as non-Irish manuscripts which were annotated by an Irishman. The language of the dry-point glosses is predominantly Latin, Old Irish glosses being safely attested merely in the seventh-century 'Codex Usserianus Primus', a manuscript containing a Vetus Latina version of the Gospels.
