New light on Gildas

Monday 2 September, at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
National Library of Wales
 Mon 2nd September 2019
Dr Iestyn Daniel explores anew the questions surrounding the sixth-century Latin document commonly known as De Excidion Britanniae, which has been the subject of considerable sturdy but much about it still remains unresolved and debatable.

In this lecture he will bring additional light to bear on such questions as Gildas’ linguistic inheritance and ethnic identity, where he lived, where he launched his missive and his Latin style, and will outline the main conclusions of his work on a new Welsh edition of the text.This event is supported and sponsored by The Learned Society of Wales.
