The Abbey Library of Saint Gall holds a collection of early Irish manuscripts from the 7th to the middle of the 9th century. Dr Dora presents the connection of the abbey to Ireland, from its founder Gall, who came with Columbanus from Bangor, to Bishop Marcus and his nephew Moengal. In a broader sense, the talk will clarify the Irish contributions that underpin Europe.
