St. Gallen, Stiftsbibliothek, MS 904 = Priscian commentary
Moran, Pádraic, “Latin grammar crossing multilingual zones: St Gall, Stiftsbibliothek, 904”, in: Michael Clarke, and Máire Ní Mhaonaigh (eds), Medieval multilingual manuscripts: case studies from Ireland to Japan, 24, Berlin, Online: De Gruyter, 2022. 35–53.  

Priscian’s Latin Grammar was originally written to enable Greek-speakers to study Latin. In this ninth-century manuscript, a further dimension is added by the presence of over 9,400 annotations written sometimes in Latin, sometimes in Old Irish, and often code-switching between the two, all in the service of the study of linguistic science.

Bauer, Bernhard [principal researcher], The online database of the Old Irish Priscian glosses, Online: Indogermanistik Wien, 2014–. URL: <>. 
... a corpus dictionary of all the Old Irish glosses dealing with the Latin grammar of Priscian, which are found in codex 904 of the Stiftsbibliothek of St Gall (Sankt Gallen, Switzerland) and in four minor mss. of roughly the same period, i.e.
  • Karlsruhe Codex Augiensis (Reichenau) CXXXII
  • Paris BN ms lat. 10290
  • Milan Bibl. Ambr. Codex Ambrosianus A 138 sup.
  • Leiden Universiteitsbibliotheek, BPL 67
To accomplish this task, the project worker Dr. Bernhard Bauer entered all the Old Irish Priscian glosses into a Filemaker database, analysed them grammatically, commented on them and, naturally, also provided a full glossary for them. This database is an adapted version of the one developed by Dr. Aaron Griffith for the Milan Glosses Dictionary Project. The main corpus of glosses adduced as a basis for this work, the St Gall glosses, was not taken from the gloss edition in Thesaurus Palaeohibernicus but from a recently established online database containing the full text of the St Gall glosses. This database was compiled by Pádraic Moran and is itself based on the published as well as the unpublished work by Rijcklof Hofman on the Priscian glosses. Dr. Moran has kindly granted full access to this database.
