A critical edition, with facing English translation, of the Latin Life of Gruffudd ap Cynan. It has long been recognized that the surviving Welsh text is a translation of an original Latin Life of Gruffudd ap Cynan, and it has always been assumed that the original Latin life had been lost.
'By uncovering the lost Latin text of the Life of Gruffudd ap Cynan, Paul Russell has performed a great service to scholars of medieval Welsh history and literature and, although this is the fifth book about Gruffudd to be published in less than 100 years, it will doubtlessly ensure the continued importance of this intriguing dynast for some time to come.'David E.
