Launch of John Colgan’s ‘Triadis Thaumaturgae’

June 28, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Colgan Triadis

Join us for the official Donegal launch of John Colgan’s ‘Triadis Thaumaturgae’, recently published by Eamon de Búrca of de Búrca’s Rare Books. The launch will include a short talk on John Colgan by local historian Seán Beattie.

Lecky described this volume: “as one of the most interesting collections of Lives of the saints in the world. It is very shameful that it has not been reprinted”. The new introduction by Pádraig Ó Riain, contains the first published account of Colgan’s recently discovered manuscript notes to the Triadis. This reprint should stimulate further the growing interest in the history of the Irish saints.
