Byrne, Paul, “Life of St Molua: date and authorship”, Peritia 24–25 (2013-2014): 90–107.
The extant recensions of the Life of St Molua are examined to determine the date of composition. The main focus is on the historical content of the Life. The result shows, with a high degree of assurance, that the original is a seventh-century composition, and thus one of the earliest works of Irish hagiography. Its author may have been Laidcend mac Baíth Bandaig, sapiens († 661).
