The Gospel according to Luke in Ulster-Scots

Ullans Press

The title page illustration of Luke is taken from the 1603 edition of the Geneva Bible. Originally published in 1560, the Geneva Bible was the first English version to be translated directly from the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. It is thought that its translators included John Calvin and John Knox. It was also the first Bible to be printed in Scotland, in 1579. Around 1626, Sir Hugh Montgomery presented the six churches in his Ulster and Scottish lands (Greyabbey, Newtownards, Donaghadee, Comber, Kilmore and Portpatrick) with a copy of the 1603 Barker edition of the Geneva Bible, each of which had the Montgomery Braidstane coat of arms embossed on the cover in gold leaf.

Tha Fower Gospels

Tha Fower Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in Ulster-Scots is the first translation of the Four Gospels into Ulster-Scots. It is the fruit of the labour of several groups of Ulster-Scots volunteers from counties Antrim and Down, working since 2006 under the direction of professional Bible translators, Philip and Heather Saunders, and has been published by Ullans Press, the imprint of the Ulster-Scots Language Society. It is available for sale from Amazon: - order here.

FORTHCOMING

The Ulster-Scots Academy is currently working on the digitisation of Dr Philip Robinson's seminal Ulster-Scots Grammar and the English/Ulster-Scots part (with circa 10,000 entries) of a two-way historical dictionary of Ulster-Scots. These projects are planned to be completed and available on the site in 2016.
