Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book The Legend of St Brendan: A Comparative Study of the Latin and Anglo-Norman Versions contains a translation of the book The Anglo-Norman Voyage of St Brendan based on Waters' edition. During the Middle Ages, one of the most popular narratives was the story of St Brendan's journey across the ocean, witnessing many marvels, before reaching the Terra repromissionis sanctorum-the Promised Land of the Saints. The earliest version of the voyage tale of Brendan is the Latin Navigatio Sancti Brendani abbatis (probably dating from the ninth century), although the oldest version of the voyage itself is in the Vita Brendani. The earliest vernacular translation is the Anglo-Norman Voyage of St Brendan, which dates from the beginning of the twelfth century.
