every knowledge that (carries off?) man's soul.' The word is grammatically inexplicable, and the difficulty of the translation is not lessened by the impossible anman following. It is noteworthy however that there is a common legal term for the prohibition of certain things, which is nearly identical with this word, cf. SM. 11. 250, 2 tri meich

view to;

bracha cen ón cen ainim, aracuilliu eric do flaith, gl. urchuillter co na bia eric, where evidently the meaning is that the chief is forbidden to seek eric. Again, II. 62, 5 acht ma (or in] arachuille cleircecht [sic corrigendum], 'what clerkship forbids', gl. aní urchuille ; iv. 302, 4 lepaid arcuile liaig, 'a bed which a physician forbids'; cf. also v. 166, i treba ar'a cuille coir urnadma, gl. is urcuillti do reir coir; v 266, 19 foruis ar a'chuille coir n-athgabala; v. 132, i mor-seisir arcuile coir urnadma ; v. 160, i treaba ari's cuille coir urnadma. There can be little doubt that this legal expression is the term employed here :

all knowledge that is forbidden to man's soul', is perfectly in harmony

with the context, which has just referred to spells of wizards &c. arad, ladder ; 113, 23. arailiu, dat. of araile, other ; four times used, only by Broccan, in a difficult

construction, 119, 79 ba mó amru arailiu (120, 93. 124, 149). 124, 160 ni furecht cid óen screpul ba mo triun arailiu [F araile). Cogitosus (quoted by Colgan,) is nearly literal, cap. xxviii, nulla pars alia minor, vel alia quae aliam superaret, licet uno obulo, de his inuenta est tribus partibus. The subst. (amru or triun) is the dative of comparison, “it was greater than any other individual third”, “than any other single miracle", by even one scruple', or as Ebel renders, non inventum est etiam uno scripulo majorem esse unum trientem altero ; for most assuredly cid oen screpul is not, as Windisch holds, the subject of furecht, because screpul could not possibly mean one-third as given in

Goid., v. screpul. arbág (?) 131, 34 mc Maire, bages arbaga finna, who fights white fights,

though the gl. F renders ar gnima mathe, for good deeds, [reading ar baga]; or perhaps, 'who boasts good boastings'; in any case the tr. must be vague, because bag means 'fight', so that we have who 'fights [strives or boasts] white (good) fights' [and for white fights ']. O'Davoren, adds to the possibilities by reading 'ar mbaga' f., (p. 61,

sub bág .i. gnim), 'our fair deeds.' arbaigim, I strive, fight ; boast of, cf. 11. Cor. ix. 2, de uobis glorior, apud Wb.

gl., biuu-sa oc irbáig dar far cenn-si fri M., is hed in-so ara bagimse, this is what I boast of.' Unfortunately, the passage, 131, 35, is quite untranslateable :

friscera Dia dulech

lurech arbaig mo thenga [F. thinga); dulech God will answer

a cuirass, (in which ?) my tongue boasts." The gll. shed no light : mo thenga i.e. 'out of which he may make a strife. But lurech is left disconnected. If the letters of the text be adhered to, we can only read

lurech ar baig mo thenga,

“my tongue is a cuirass for fight," which is against the gl., but is the only rendering grammatically

possible, for lurech cannot be taken as the object of friscera. ard, high, lofty ; arduous ; 30, 44 — fegad ; 116, 54 - in coscur. Ard-mocha, Armagh, 101, 43. ar don'roigse, see roig.se. ar do*utacht, see ar utacht. argairt, 118, 65, where TF gl. by ro'ingair,‘she herded (sheep)', but argarim

means to forbid, prevent, cf. Wb. gl., Tit. ii. 3, ni argari recht díinn;

Ml. 53 a 9; ingaire is the normal word for 'herding'. argat, silver; gen., 123, 41 set argait, 124, 153 (gg).

arithisi, back, (coming) back, 99, 14. 'arlaid, 115, 40 con idn'arlaid síth iar saith, so that there befel him peace

after toil', where the gl. T ro'airlestar, sheds no light ; the meaning can hardly be mistaken, but the form seems the result of a 'contamination between -luid, and doʻra-la, quasi tarla, tarlaid, doʻn'ar

laid. arni gim, I pray; imperf. 3 sg., 100, 26, arniged, gl. he made prayers or

penitence (T prayers or cleansing), the latter apparently connecting it

with nigim, ‘I wash'. arralastar) came upon, met; dep. perf. 102, 47 ba he ar id'ralastar, 'it

was he who met him'(?); the gl. arrále is no clearer. According to the gl., “Victor sent an angel to invite Patrick to himself (Victor), viz. without his going to Armagh', on the text it was he that met him': P. was going to Armagh, apparently on the summons of the angel, who told him to go to Victor; but Victor met Patrick on the way, and stopped him by appearing in the burning bush. But if 'ralastar is to be taken as = 'sent', then the ba he becomes unintelligible, unless the clause be read “it was he (Victor) who sent for him ", which the verb cannot bear. The matter is still further complicated by the uncertainty as to the meaning of dofaith in I. 47. But even the glosses are not in harmony, for while on 46 the T gl. explains "angel' by Victor, the F gl. says directly, non Victor sed alius! And on 47 the word he leaves the sense vague, unless we take Victor to be the angel, and tr. '( Patrick) was sent. But none of these meanings ‘met' or 'sent' or 'sent for' will fit in 124, 150 which adds another difficulty: 'it was a miracle greater than any other single miracle', arid'ralastar ind noeb, the saint (Brigid] performed it, where the gl. roim( oilgestar, ‘she brought it about, wrought it', leaves no doubt as to the sense of the passage in the opinion of the glossators; so that Broccan's use of the word, 124, 150, may furnish a reason why this meaning should be adopted also for 102, 47 “he it was who wrought this

(miracle following, viz.] the bush blazed &c. See on 'ralastar, -art, in mug-art', 121, 117 gl. 'tall pig', or “fat pig', prob. a mere ety. gl.,

for mug is not muci. O'Reilly prob. had no further evidence of the

alleged meaning ‘hog' than this passage. (1) ar-utacht, held to be t-pret. 3 sg., from pres. base ar-utaing = reficit,

protegit in 113, 19 for maig arutacht cathir, which the gl. gives she built a city i.e. Kildare', (?) where the gl. roʻchumtaig, she built,' points to another possibility, for as con roʻtaig MI. 40 d 5 means substruxit, so we have con roʻtacht, was built', cf. FM. iii. 1860, 14 baile conrodacht for úr an mara ; and cf. LL. (38086) is le conrotacht in rig-raith for taob Temra, “by her was built the royal fort on a side of Tara.” Here therefore is a parallel case, “on a plain was built a city.” And indeed, the place is referred to by FM. ann. 525, “by her (Kildare) was founded," ba le conrodacht. Probably therefore the analysis, a-rùtacht catbir, where the a arose from a misreading of 5,

is the explanation. (1) arutacht, 124, 146 in ban-trebthach, ar doʻutacht im-M., “the widow
