Chapter Summary

This chapter gives us a glimpse of the growing collections of legal glosses and commentary and insight into the extent of legal activity in Ireland in the Middle Ages. One must bear in mind when considering the relationships of the sources containing material relevant to CL that A contains the only complete version of the tract. The next source to be considered is C. Although it contains only a copy of § 2 of the tract and some commentary, it is significant for several reasons. One of them is that the tract contained in C probably does not derive directly from A (nor any of the other surviving sources), but rather a version of the material closer to A's exemplar.

Keywords: Ireland; legal glosses; scribes; sources
