Description
Abstract (cited)
The life of St. Íte of Killeedy survives in seven manuscripts, preserving two recensions. This article considers the relationships among these manuscripts, and the textual evidence they provide about the shaping of the life in the course of its transmission. In some cases, the scribes and redactors consciously shaped their material for their contemporary purposes, but the article concludes with the suggestion that one of its earliest features, a small but telling detail, travelled with the text unnoticed through all these vicissitudes.
