  • Title: Five Lecciones for the Feast of St. Nonita: A Text and its Context [Curley analyzes a set of liturgical lessons for the Welsh Saint Nonita, mother of Saint David. He argues that the author of the text adapted Rhigyfarch's "Vita Sancti David" (circa 1095) to emphasize the saint's mother's actions. The text cannot be dated but it was in circulation by 1458. The text as it comes down was copied by a fifteenth century antiquarian but is not complete. It is particularly valuable because most Welsh service books have not survived. The article concludes with the Latin text and an English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
