Ailbhe, patron of the diocese of Cashel and Emly, a ‘second Patrick’ with ‘all Munster behind him’, was the most prominent southern Irish saint to have been made the subject of a Life. In this volume, all surviving textual witnesses, Latin and Irish, to Ailbhe’s Life are brought together under one cover. Each of the Latin and Irish texts is provided with an English translation. The Latin version of the saint’s Life in Rawlinson MS 505, and the vernacular version in Brussels MS 2324-40 are edited here for the first time.
