Description
Abstract (cited)
Latin sentences and phrases are found in the early Irish vernacular Laws (ranging from Old-Irish commentaries to later gloss and commentary). Some sentences have parallels in the Hibernensis, itself related to earlier Hiberno-Latin florilegia. At times, the evidence suggests that the vernacular legists are drawing directly on Hiberno-Latin literature rather than the Hibernensis. These and other collections of aphorisms were, therefore, important for the early Irish canonists and of continued interest to the legists who wrote the vernacular Laws and commentaries.
