The Department of Irish and Celtic Languages and the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute are pleased to announce that they are hosting an interdisciplinary symposium entitled ‘Celebrating the Saints: A Focus on Martyrologies and Calendars’. This symposium calls attention to martyrologies and saints’ calendars from the early medieval to early modern period in both Latin and the vernacular, and brings together scholars from diverse fields of expertise. Over the space of two days, the symposium will feature contributions from historians, Celticists, Latinists, Anglo-Saxonists and theologians, as well as a round table discussion with a view to exploring new comparative approaches and avenues for future research. The keynote lecture will be given by Prof. Pádraig Ó Riain.

This event will be hosted in the Neill Theatre in the Long Room Hub, on October 28-9, 2016. More information will be posted in due course at https://celebratingthesaints2016.wordpress.com
