Celtic Scribe


Ferdomnach is known as the scribe of the Book of Armagh, which was compiled from older manuscripts in about 807 at the request of Torbach, Abbot of Armagh. Many of the passages are written in Gaelic, and there is the Latin Confessio of St Patrick, as well as a copy of the New Testament. The manuscript is in the library of Trinity College, Dublin.
