Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book titled The Legend of St Brendan: A Comparative Study of the Latin and Anglo-Norman Versions. 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. Brendan's cyclical voyage lasts for seven years, during which time he returns to locations at principal dates in the liturgical year.
