MacRegol, Illuminator

(d. 821)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Said to have been the abbot of Birr who died in 820. He illuminated, in the style of the Book of Kells, a book of the Four Gospels now preserved in the Bodleian Library, which is signed on the last page, Mac Regol depincxit, with a request for a prayer from the reader.
