Gaelic week in Centre for Research Collections

Posted on March 7, 2014 | in CRC, Featured, Library | by

To celebrate the University’s first-ever Seachdain na Gàidhlig, or Gaelic Week, yesterday CRC displayed a number of treasures from the rare book and manuscript collections.  These included notebooks of folklorist Alexander Carmichael, the 11th-century manuscript known as the “Celtic Psalter”, and the first book printed in any Gaelic language – the 1567 liturgy Foirm na nurrnuidheadh agas freasdal na sacramuinteadh, agas foirceadul an chreidimh Christuidhe andso sios.  We are the only library in Scotland to have a copy of this little book; only two other copies are known to survive.0023148d
