Description
Abstract (cited)
This is an edition and detailed analysis of six complex early Celtic-Latin texts—a note on the Irish reception of the computus, a part of Cummian’s Paschal letter, the incipit of the Egloga and the whole text of the Lorica of Laidcenn mac Baíth, Cú Chuimne’s hymn Cantemus in omni die, and the learned poem Adelphus adelpha mater. The analysis draws attention to their elaborate and intricate structure and the metrical and linguistic skills of their authors. It further demonstrates that their Latin represents correct Classical and Late Latin usage.
Subject classification
Hiberno-Latin literature to c.1169
