The Welsh ‘Life of St Martin’

Jenny Day has been editing Buchedd Marthin, a Welsh translation of Sulpicius Severus’s Vita Sancti Martini (one of the earliest and most influential saints’ Lives) and of passages from other works by Sulpicius (c.360–?c.430) and by Gregory of Tours (c.538/9–94). She will be discussing how these Latin texts were translated into Welsh and adapted for a late-medieval Welsh audience in the One-day Forum ‘Gutun Owain and the literary tradition of the north-east’ in Aberystwyth on 14 May 2016.
