The legal triads of medieval Wales. University of Wales Press, 2007

KD9405.R63 2007

 

Medieval Wales had a separate system of law to that found in English. Although the purpose of the law manuscripts was to explain the legal complexities, these manuscripts also contain large collections of legal triads, basically sentences listing things in threes. These were probably composed for educational, mnemonic purposes, and offer a real insight into the workings of medieval Welsh law. This book is the first full study of the legal triads, an important part of medieval Welsh law. This book will be a useful starting point for studying medieval Welsh law.
