Abstract

This session derives from work on the AHRC-funded project, ‘Vitae Sanctorum Cambriae’ (ASNC, Cambridge and the Canolfan, Aberystwyth) on the Latin lives of Welsh saints, and explores what happens to the Latin lives of Welsh saints when they travel beyond Wales. Three aspects are considered: the fate of the life of St Cadoc; issues in editing the lives of Welsh saints which feature in the Nova Legenda Anglie; two adaptations of the life of St David, both of which were probably written outside Wales.
