Can You Figure It Out? Check out this Latin manuscript.

 

Can you read the largest word on this manuscript?  This was written in Ireland in the 800s CE.  Pretty cool stuff!

Bonus for those that dare:  translate the two lines above that word.  It begins with incipit.

Double bonus:  Pick out any other words or names that you recognize!

 

We’ll talk about this in class!

  1. Liber is the biggest word. The Gospels begins with the writings of Matthew. Ihu–Christ. Mattheus homo–the man Matthew. Abraham. Davider–David. Generationis–of the Generation. The book of the generation of Christ.
