Translations of Two Early Medieval Texts on the New Jerusalem

In February 2024 the book Revelation’s New Jerusalem in Late Antiquity, edited by Nathan Betz, Anthony Dupont, and Johan Leemans, was published. Pages 153-171 contains my chapter entitled “Two Early Medieval Hiberno-Latin Texts on the New Jerusalem: Introduction, Transcription, and Translation.”

As the title of the chapter indicates, a Latin edition with English translation of the two texts not previously translated into English anywhere, are provided. I also introduce each text discussing its date, provenance, and contents. The chapter concludes with an explanation of how these texts show that the early Irish writers were very curious and creative in their eschatology and how they exemplify their fondness for classification.

I hope you will purchase a copy of the book, which you can do by clicking here.
