Hear Dr Ann Buckley discuss this late medieval choir book when she comes to the Trinity Long Room Hub for Beyond the Book of Kells: A Fifteenth-Century Irish Antiphoner.

While the ninth century manuscript, The Book of Kells, is known internationally and attracts over 600,000 visitors per year, you may not know that Trinity College is also home to 600 medieval manuscripts which range from the fifth to the sixteenth century.

Beyond the Book of Kells is a series which puts the spotlight on the other significant books and altogether they cover the entire gamut of medieval thought.

Standing at almost half a metre tall, the Fifteenth-Century Irish Antiphoner is a late medieval choir book which was in the hands local Clondalkin families in the sixteenth century.
