Lives & Legends of St Brendan the Voyager

Denis O'Donaghue

Lives & Legends of St Brendan the Voyager
Reprinted from a larger work by O'Donaghue entitled Brendaniana, the selections presented here include the Irish Life from the Book of Lismore with an English translation, the Latin Life translated into English, the Legends of St. Brendan, and an appendix by Thomas Wright containing the Early English Metrical Life, and also the Early English Prose Life. The parts omitted from Brendaniana for the sake of economy include the account of the pilgrimage to Brandon Mountain in 1861, the history of the ancient cathedral of Ardfert-Brendan, and a somewhat dubious account of vestiges of prehistoric Irish settlements or missions in North America.
