Muirchú Moccu Macthéni's 'Vita Sancti Patricii' = Life of Saint Patrick by D. R Howlett( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Howlett presents a radically new text, translation, and analysis of Muirchu moccu Mactheni's Life of Saint Patrick, with newly discovered internal confirmations of the text, a definitive solution to the problem of the ordering of chapters, evidence of Muirchu's learning, deeper than previously supposed, and of his architectonic genius. Howlett suggests a date, a more ambitious theological purpose, and a more aggressive political purpose than earlier scholars have recognized. Muirchu exerted a profound, if previously unrecognized, influence upon later hagiographical writers, not only in Ireland, but also in Brittany and in Wales, to be considered in two further books dealing with the Breton Latin Life of Saint Samson of Dol and Rhygyfarch ap Sulien's Welsh Latin Life of Saint David."--BOOK JACKET
Caledonian craftsmanship : the Scottish Latin tradition by D. R Howlett( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and French and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Caledonian Craftsmanship: The Scottish Latin Tradition David Howlett presents a documented account of the origins of Scottish Latin literature from the end of the 11th century and the 12th. Editions of thirty texts from original manuscripts - liturgical, diplomatic, poetic, hagiographic, historical, genealogical, and theological - many translated here for the first time, illustrate both links with earlier English, Irish, and Welsh Latin traditions and links within the emerging class of Scottish Latin writers. One purpose of this literature was to provide in a common acquired language cultural monuments for a 'Regnum Scottorum', a kingdom of the Scots, embracing Gaels, Britons, Picts, Norseman, Englishmen, and Normans, independent of both Anglo-Norman kings and English archbishops, in a stylish act of self-definition that has few parallels in European history."--BOOK JACKET

6 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author reveals in inscriptions an unbroken tradition that complements the tradition in both literary and diplomatic texts analysed in his earlier books published by the press."--BOOK JACKET
