A collection of scholarly resources, including religious texts dating back to 1600, have been published online by the Royal Irish Academy.
Corpas na Gaeilge 1882-1926 and the Online Archive of Religious Texts 1600-1882 have been published as part of the academy’s Foclóir na Nua-Ghaeilge project.
The corpus follows the 2004 publication of an archive of the 1600–1882 period. It features works by Pádraig Pearse, Seosamh Mac Grianna and Pádraic Ó Conaire, as well as a translation of Chekov’s The Bear.
It includes almost 300 books in Irish published between 1882 and 1926. Readers can search for words or phrases located in their original context. Content from periodicals and newspapers will be added later. The collection includes short stories, novels, plays and song lyrics, as well as scientific reference books, Government documents and translations.
The Online Archive of Religious Texts 1600-1882 includes Eochair Sgiath an Aifrinn by the poet and historian Seathrún Céitinn, composed ca 1615, and An Teagasg Críosdaidhe, by Bonabhentura Ó hEodhasa (1611).
