FUNDING: Isaac Newton Trust & Converting the Isles Network

 We are delighted to announce that Mapping Miracles investigators Sarah Waidler and Dr Jennifer Key will shortly commence work on a postdoctoral project funded by the Isaac Newton Trust, under the stewardship of Principal Investigator Dr Máire Ní Mhaoniagh, in cooperation with the Cambridge based Converting the Isles Network. The intention of this six-month project is to produce a trial database of miracle motifs relating to conversion to Christianity found in insular hagiography. The database will encompass saints’ Lives written in Old English, Latin, Middle Welsh and Old and Middle Irish, from the seventh to twelfth centuries.
