New Publication: Córus Bésgnai: An Old Irish Law Tract on the Church and Society

Edited by Liam Breatnach, this book will be available to buy from Friday 28th April.

Córus Bésgnai, a component tract of the Old Irish law text Senchas Már, is an important source text for the Church in early mediaeval Ireland. This book consists of annotated editions and translations of the Old Irish text as well as the later mediaeval glosses and commentaries. It should be of use to those interested not only in early mediaeval Ireland, but also in the early mediaeval Western Church.
