Abstract :
Comprises a brief art-historical and palaeographical evaluation of Ieuan's copy of Augustine's De Trinitate (Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, MS 199), and Rhygyfarch's Psalter and Martyrology (Dublin, Trinity College, MS 50), the only two manuscripts which can be said with certainty to have been produced in Wales in the 11th c. The manuscripts are linked by their association with the two brothers from Llanbadarn Fawr, Ieuan and Rhygyfarch, and also by a close similarity in their style of script and decoration. All the decoration of the Llanbadarn manuscripts was carried out by Ieuan who also wrote the copy of De Trinitate. Compares these manuscripts with earlier Welsh and also with contemporary Irish products. Both script and decoration are, to a certain extent, distinct from Irish counterparts. Welsh and Irish scripts shared common roots but did not develop in the same way. ;
