Jaski, Bart, “Dianchride and the Book of Dimma”, Peritia 32 (2021): 115–132.  
abstract:

The Book of Dimma is an Irish pocket gospel book dated to the (late) eighth century. Recent scholarly views are that the first three gospels were commissioned by Dianchride of the Múscraige near Roscrea (or even written by him); that the name of the scribe Dimma that was written over erasures was a fraud inspired by a hagiographical tale in the Life of St Crónán of Roscrea; and that it is unknown when the Gospel of John was added to the other three gospels. These and other views are challenged and alternative explanations are proposed.

Jaski, Bart, “The oldest datings of the Utrecht psalter: rudimentary palaeography in the early seventeenth century”, Quaerendo 45:1-2 (2015): 125–143.  
abstract:
In the 1620s two attempts were made to date the Utrecht Psalter (c.830, in or around Reims): by its owner Robert Cotton and by the theologian James Ussher. Their results offer an insight into how a collector and a scholar practised palaeography before this became a modern study in the decades around 1700. The Utrecht Psalter, as well as the Cotton Genesis and other manuscripts, were dated in relation to their script, decoration and content. This case study underlines that the history of palaeography and codicology before Mabillon and Montfaucon is worth studying, not only in its own right, but also with regard to the development of humanism and its scholarly networks.

abstract:
The Irish chronicle known to modern scholarship as the ‘Annals of Roscrea’ is found only in the manuscript Brussels, Bibliothèque Royale 5301-20 pp. 97−161. It was first registered in print in the comprehensive catalogue of the manuscripts in the Burgundian Library at Brussels published in 1842, and an edition was published by Dermot Gleeson and Seán Mac Airt in 1959. Recent research has shown that the principal scribe, the Franciscan friar Fr Brendan O’Conor, transcribed his source, ‘mutila Historia D. Cantwelij’, in two successive phases and then in a third phase it was annotated and indexed by his fellow Franciscan Fr Thomas O’Sheerin. This research has also shown that the edition of Gleeson and Mac Airt is incomplete, having omitted the pre-Patrician section of the chronicle. Hence this, the first full edition of the work, has been prepared in facsimile form so as to make clear the successive phases of compilation of the text, to provide an accurate account of its orthography, to identify the relationship of its entries to those of other chronicles, and to furnish an AD chronology consistent with the other Clonmacnoise group chronicles.
