Event description

Description

The Library of Trinity College Dublin, in conjunction with the School of History and Humanities and the School of English, presents a one - day symposium on the Dublin Apocalypse. The Dublin Apocalypse (TCD MS 64) is a vibrantly illuminated manuscript of international importance and one of the treasures of the Library. This 14th-century manuscript, made in England and attributed to the Ormesby Master, contains the Latin text of the Book of Revelation and depicts the End of Days in miniatures of gold and vivid colour. The symposium will feature talks from renowned scholars on multiple aspects of the manuscript and its broader context as well as an account of the acquisition of the Dublin Apocalypse involving a curious deal between the College and a former Provost. The event will take place in the Neill Lecture Theatre, Long Room Hub, on Friday, 1 February 2019, generously supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub and the TCD Association and Trust.
