The Cult of Saints in Wales: Carmarthen Conference

The Cult of Saints in Wales: Sources and Contexts

16–19 September 2014
Halliwell Centre, Carmarthen

This conference is held as part of the AHRC-funded ‘The Cult of Saints in Wales: Medieval Welsh-language Sources and their Transmission’. The principal aim of the project is to produce an electronic edition of the poetry addressed to saints, the prose lives, and the saints’ genealogies which make up the Welsh-language hagiographical corpus.

At the conference these texts will be examined and discussed; the aim is also to locate them in a wide range of contexts. At its broadest, the theme encompasses the range of local responses to hagiography across Celtic-speaking countries, Britain and Europe.
