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.

[ed.] [tr.] Atkinson, Robert, The passions and the homilies from Leabhar Breac: text, translation and glossary, Todd Lecture Series, 2, Dublin: Hodges, Figgis, 1887.  

Note that there are various references throughout the book to material in the appendix, but in the introduction, Atkinson states he regrets “that I have not found it possible to include in the present volume the Appendix and Notes”.

259–266 (text); 495–503 (Latin opening, English translation); 503–506 (Latin comment from p. 248 onwards) [id. 35.]

Atkinson’s editorial method is to reproduce the Latin sections separately, together with the English translation, which makes his edition somewhat difficult to follow.
