Dr John Davies of Mallwyd : Welsh Renaissance scholar by Ceri Davies( )

"Dr. John Davies (c.1567-1644) of Mallwyd was the greatest scholar of the later Renaissance period in Wales. He was an industrious collector and copyist of manuscripts, and his painstaking work in studying their contents and in preserving bardic vocabulary established the basics for modern research into the Welsh language."

The Renaissance and the Celtic countries by Editor:Ceri Davies( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written by leading scholars in the field, this volume sheds new light on the Renaissance in Ireland, Wales and Scotland. The book covers a wide range of topics, including: Richard Stanihurst's innovative interpretation of Irish history of 1584; the debate between the "old" and the "new" in Welsh poetry; the epigrams of the versatile and well-connected Welsh writer of Latin verse, John Owen; the rendering in epic style of the Psalms by the consummate Latinist, George Buchanan; and the printing press and book trade in Renaissance and Reformation Scotland. These studies show that by the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Celtic countries were an integral part of the wider European Renaissance, and demonstrate how Celtic writers, scholars and patrons contributed to the cultural developments of the period."--Jacket

"The present work brings John Prise's Historiae Britannicae Defensio back into print for the first time since 1573, when an edition was published by the author's son, Richard Prise. The 1573 printing forms the copy-text, critically edited in the light of the one surviving manuscript (Oxford, Balliol College, MS 260) of a version which is very close to it. The facing English translation is the first published translation of the Defensio. The work is accompanied by an extensive introduction and elucidatory notes." ... (Preliminary page)
