Maelbrigte Ua Maeluanaigh, Illuminator

(fl. c. 1138)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A small copy of the Gospels in the Harleian collection in the British Museum was completed in 1138 at Armagh by him, as appears from a note at the end: "A prayer for Maelbrigte who wrote this book in the 28th year of his age." The work is adorned with ornamental initial letters and curious symbolical figures of the Four Evangelists.
