Description
Abstract (cited)
This is an edition and translation of an Old-Irish legal text, dating probably from c.700, and describing a lawsuit on the assignment of twins, after their mother Sadb had been repudiated by their father Ailill Aulomm. A decision is reached on the basis of principles governing marriage and an ordeal is avoided. The legal proceedings are represented as being conducted in a highly artistic style, commonly called rosc or retoiric in Irish studies, and deriving from late antique and medieval rhetoric.
