The Saints of Llandaff

November 11 @ 5:00 pm

Since 2013, a team based at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies in Aberystwyth has been editing and translating medieval Welsh poetry addressed to saints in Wales and the Lives of Welsh saints. A second phase of the project, in collaboration with the University of Cambridge, is working on new editions and translations of Latin Lives of Welsh saints, including the saints’ Lives found in the twelfth century book of Llandaff, which include traditions about Dyfrig (Dubricius), Teilo and Euddogwy, who were adopted as patrons of Llandaff Cathedral.

Members of the project team will be giving talks about these saints on Saturday 11 November in Prebendal House, Llandaff. There is no charge for the talks, which will begin at 2pm, but if you would like to come please let the organisers know by contacting seintiau@cymru.ac.uk . 

There will also be an exhibition about saints in Wales on display in the cathedral for those who want to find out more about the work of the project in their own time. One of the talks will be held in the cathedral, looking at some of the images of saints in sculpture and stained glass.

Speakers:

Professor Paul Russell and Dr Ben Guy (University of Cambridge)

Dr David Parsons and Dr Martin Crampin (University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies)
