Description
Abstract (cited)
Liber Coronacionis Britanorum ('The Book of the Crowning of the Britons') is a Middle Welsh adaptation of Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain. In this companion to his edition Patrick Sims-Williams investigates its relationship to Geoffrey's Latin original and the other medieval Welsh translations, providing a full explanatory commentary and a study of its language. The cover picture (from National Library of Wales, MS Peniarth 23, fol. 61r) shows the boy Myrddin (Merlin) advising King Gwrtheyrn (Vortigern) about the buried dragons.
