Apocripha MacGriogair 1860

Chaidh an Apocripha eadar-theangachadh dhan Ghàidhlig leis an t-Urr. Alasdair MacGriogair (1806-1881) o Inbhir Nis. Thogadh MacGriogair san Eilean Sgitheanach, agus aig àm an eadar-theangachaidh bha e na mhinistear air an Eaglais an Iar, Inbhir Nis. Air tùs chaidh 250 leth-bhreac a chlò-bhualadh le Strangeways and Walden, 28 Sràid aʼ Chaisteil, Lunnainn ann an 1860. Anns aʼ chlò-bhualadh tùsail bha gach earrainn aʼ tòiseachadh air loidhne ùr, agus bha aʼ chiad litir de gach caibdeal ann an litrichean mòra, leis aʼ chiad litir na litir sònraichte mòr.

Bha an Apocripha Gàidhlig seo air a bharantachadh leis an eòlaiche-chànan Louis Lucien Bonaparte (1813-1891), mac bràthair Napoleòn Bonaparte. Ghluais Louis Lucien Bonaparte gu Lunnainn ann am meadhan an naoidheamh-linn-deug, tràth anns na leth-cheudan, aʼ stèidheachadh a dhachaidh aig 6-8 Barraid Norfolk, Bayswater, Lunnainn. Bha e fileanta ann an Eadailtis, Fraingis, Spàinntis, Beurla agus Basgais, agus thàinig e gu bhith na bhall gnìomhach den Chomann Eòlais-Chànan. Bha ùidh sònraichte aige ann am mion-chànain.

Scots Gaelic Apocrypha 1860

The Scots Gaelic Apocrypha was translated by Rev Alexander MacGregor (1806-1881) of Inverness. MacGregor had been raised in the Isle of Skye, but at the time when he translated the Apocrypha, was the minister of West Church, Inverness. Originally 250 copies of the Apocrypha were published by Strangeways and Walden of 28 Castle Street in London in 1860. In the original print each verse is set on a new line, and the first word of each chapter was in capital letters, with the first letter as a large capital.

The Scots Gaelic Apocrypha was commissioned by the philologist Louis Lucien Bonaparte (1813-1891), a nephew of Napoléon Bonaparte. Louis Lucien Bonaparte moved to London in the early 1850s setting up home at 6-8 Norfolk Terrace, Bayswater, London. He was fluent in Italian, French, Spanish, English and Basque and became an active member of the Philological Society. Bonaparte was particularly interested in minority languages. He would pay for the printing of many translations of portions of the Bible that he commissioned, for example in Scots Gaelic, Lowland Scots, Guernsey French and other languages and English dialects including Cornish and Dorset dialects. Bonaparte travelled to Inverness especially to meet with MacGregor in order to commission this translation.
