McNally, Robert E., “‘In nomine Dei summi’: seven Hiberno-Latin sermons”, Traditio 35 (1979): 121–143.  
In two early medieval manuscripts, Vat. Pal. lat. 220 and Vat. Pal. lat. 212, there are contained seven short sermons or homilies which provide convincing evidence of being Irish in character. They are worthy of publication because the amount of homiletical literature coming from Irish circles at this early time is not very great, and because a careful consideration of them is apt to throw light on the Irish literary method. They reveal various internal characteristics which are known to be symptomatic of the Hiberno-Latin element; and they present sufficient material to allow one to study closely how the Irish used sources in the preparation of their homilies. The approach of our anonymous author to Scripture stands in the Antiochene rather than the Alexandrian tradition. Thus his interest is in the literal more than in the spiritual sense of the text; and in this he shows a certain affinity with the Irish exegetes of this period. I should like to reproduce here the text of these sermons and to elucidate their character by relating them in parallel fashion to other contemporary works that are known to be part of the Hiberno-Latin tradition.

A collection of funerary poems and other pieces in memory of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc (d. 1637), written by multiple hands and in a large variety of languages. The poems appeared in print in 1638, in the ‘Panglossia’ section of the Monumentum Romanum edited by Jean-Jacques Bouchard and it is supposed that the manuscript was compiled in preparation for that work. The volume includes a copy, in Gaelic script, of the Irish poem associated with Luke Wadding that appeared on p. 112 of the printed publication.
