Abstract

The famous story of Dubthach maccu Lugair and the origins of the Senchus Már contains a sentence that implicitly compares native Irish learning with the traditional divisions (ordines) of the Old Testament as set forth by St Jerome, Isidore of Seville and other early authorities. In the most recent edition of the text, however, this analogy is obscured by emendation. It is the purpose of this article to restore the original, which survives in one copy, explain the variants in others, and discuss the significance of the analogy, both in the narrative itself and in early Christian thought.
