Smyth, Marina, “Isidorian texts in seventh-century Ireland”, in: Fear, Andrew, and Jamie Wood (eds), Isidore of Seville and his reception in the early Middle Ages: transmitting and transforming knowledge, Late Antique and Early Medieval Iberia, Amsterdam: Amsterdam University Press, 2016. 111–130.
“Smyth explores the longstanding assumption that, due to trading contacts between Spain and Ireland, the complete works of Isidore found their way to Ireland very soon after his death in 636. This assumption has been rendered increasingly untenable by recent studies of the early manuscript transmission of Isidore’s works. The chapter pays particular attention to the De natura rerum and the various books of the Etymologiae in order to generate a more nuanced profile for the transmission of Isidore’s works in Ireland.”
