Ériu: back catalogue now available from our webshop

05 December 2018

You can now purchase print copies of all 67 volumes in just one click

We are in the process of making the back catalogues of all our journals available for purchase in print form directly from our website.

Ériu, our journal devoted to Irish philology and literature, is the first of our six journals to appear in our webshop. Ériu is a peer-reviewed journal edited by Liam Breatnach and Damian McManus. From its foundation in 1904, it has had a reputation internationally among Celtic scholars. Since then, it has had fifteen different editors and has served as an outlet for each new generation of researchers in turn.

Throughout the 67 volumes currently in the series, you can explore over a century of research in Celtic studies: from the work of the early standard bearers of Irish language studies, like Kuno Meyer’s ‘Gauls in Ireland’ and Osborn Bergin’s ‘The Harrowing of Hell’ (Volume IV), to ‘Early Irish Saints' Cults and their Constituencies’ (T. M. Charles-Edwards, Volume LIV), through to a modern examination of the expression of ideas about love, marriage and divorce in Serglige Con Culainn – ‘Desire and divorce in Serglige Con Culainn’ (Gregory Toner, Volume LXVI).

Ériu, like our other journals, is also available electronically on JSTOR. For more information on the journal and to subscribe, visit the journal page. To buy single print issues go directly to our webshop.
