Abstract

This session examines aspects of the lives of Welsh saints in Wales, and derives from work on two AHRC-funded projects, ‘Cwlt y Seintiau’ (Canolfan Uwchefrydiau, Aberystwyth) and ‘Vitae Sanctorum Cambriae’ (ASNC, Cambridge and the Canolfan, Aberystwyth). The papers explore the literary and linguistic evidence in the lives themselves, and also consider what we have lost.
