Available only for academic teaching and research provided that this header is included in its entirety with any copy distributed. This edition may not be reproduced or used elsewhere without the explicit permission of the TLH project. For enquiries, please contact us.


Due to current browser limitations, certain characters in printed editions may not always be similarly displayed in the electronic version. In such cases, the following representations have been chosen for display purposes:

The numbers introducing each paragraph in Hibernica Minora (reproduced in the TLH edition) refer to the line numbers of the manuscript original.

Encoding principles:


TLH has corrected a minor printing error on p. 28 (l. 12) of Hibernica Minora by means of the <corr> tag; the reading of the printed edition is provided in the “sic” attribute.


This text has not been normalised.


Quotations from Patristic and ecclesiastical authorities are encoded with the <q> tag. The ‘who’ attribute specifies the source of the quotation, where this is given.


End-of-line hyphenation of the printed edition has not been retained.
