Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Folios 66b-106a of BM Egerton 1782 constitute an independently produced section containing a collection of material related to TBC. While its copy of Recension 1 of Táin Bó Cúailnge has received comparatively little critical attention due to its fragmentary nature, the collection as a whole is noteworthy for its arrangement of copies of remscéla and other material relating to TBC as prefatory material to the text of the Táin itself. Individual texts within the collection are linked explicitly to the Táin in prologues and epilogues containing critical material not found in other copies of the tales. This paper will explore the methodology of the manuscript’s compilatory practice and the critical stance towards its material which it reveals.
