‘Colm Cille’s spirals: art, history and legacy of Colm Cille’: A seminar at the Library of the Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2, Thursday 21 November 1.15pm
‘Colm Cille’s Spirals: art, history and legacy of Colm Cille’, is a seminar exploring places, objects, facts and myths connected with St Colm Cille (521-597 AD). The seminar will include a paper on the Cathach manuscript (purportedly penned by Colm Cille) placing it in the context of other manuscripts of the period, and there will be an opportunity to see the manuscript itself.
This seminar is part of Colm Cille: the Object, a Dublin City Council initiative taking place this November. The City Council programme features walking tours on 14, 15, 21 and 22 November (tours must be booked) and an especially commissioned art installation at St Mary’s Abbey. For full details of the tours and the exhibition go to www.dublincitypublicart.ie. The Academy Library is the first stop on the walking tours.
