Celebrating the Saints Conference

In 2016, I had the pleasure of organising the symposium Celebrating the Saints: A Focus on Martyrologies and Calendars in the Long Room Hub, Trinity College, Dublin, on October 28-9, 2016.

This symposium focused martyrologies and calendars in the insular world from the early medieval to early modern period. In many cases, these texts are understudied by virtue of being used for reference only, and some remain unedited altogether. The aim of the conference was to bring the rich variety of martyrologies and saints calendars surviving to attention, and to bring together scholars from diverse fields of expertise working on these texts. The event subsequently gave rise to a new network for future collaboration,the MARTRAE network, and a proceedings is underway.
