Description
Abstract (cited)
Palladius, the earliest dateable figure in the history of the Irish church, has been generally treated as a ‘lost’ character, and almost all trace of the ‘Palladian’ church is believed to have disappeared. This paper argues that one text intimately associated with Palladius, his Easter table, has in fact survived and was known to Hiberno-Latin writers in the seventh century. The principles of that table are here reconstructed and its importance for the history of early Irish contacts with the continent is demonstrated.
