Olson, Lynette (ed.), St Samson of Dol and the earliest history of Brittany, Cornwall and Wales, Studies in Celtic History 37, Woodbridge: Boydell Press, 2017.
- edited collection
This volume presents the results of new, multi-disciplinary, assessment of the text and its context. What emerges from the studies collected here is a context of greater plausibility for the First Life of St Samson of Dol as an early and essentially historical text, potentially at the centre of early British Christianity and its influence on the Continent. The landscape of that Christianity is gradually emerging from the shadows and it is a landscape in which the career of St Samson, the first Insular peregrinus, is shown to be of considerable importance.
