An Biobla Naomhtha‘The Holy Bible’
- Modern sources on Ireland, Printed book
A brief, alphabetically arranged vocabulary (5½ pages) printed at the end of the 1690 edition of Bedell’s Irish Bible (An Biobla Naomhtha), which was the first to combine the Old and New Testaments. The list was compiled by Robert Kirk, minister of Aberfoyle, who supervised the printed of this edition and appended the vocabulary to explain unfamiliar classical Irish words to Scottish readers who might be struggling with the translation. Most of the glosses are in English, while a smaller proportion of them are in Scottish Gaelic.
Primary sources Text editions and/or modern translations – in whole or in part – along with publications containing additions and corrections, if known. Diplomatic editions, facsimiles and digital image reproductions of the manuscripts are not always listed here but may be found in entries for the relevant manuscripts. For historical purposes, early editions, transcriptions and translations are not excluded, even if their reliability does not meet modern standards.
