Praise for the Print Edition

. . . there can be no doubt that the gentleman who could annex the notes to this chronicle, is a writer well deserving of public patronage, as well in his own principality, to do honour to which is the leading tendency of his writings; as in the larger part of the island, which readily acknowledges the instruction communicated by his translations.

About Tysilio

Tysilio (died AD 640) was a Welsh prince, bishop, saint, and scholar. He was the second son of Brochfael Ysgythrog, king of Powys. Tysilio left the king’s courts for the church at an early age, and eventually became an abbot. Later, when he refused to marry the recently widowed queen, Tysilio’s monastery was persecuted. He has been credited as the author of the Brut Tysilio manuscript, though more recent scholarship calls this into question.
