[EN] 1) The Life of St. Cadoc by Lifris (a Welsh cleric from Anglo-Norman stock) mentions the priory of Ile Cado, in the Etel estuary. Lifris doesn’t seem to have been an ocular witness for that priory, he might just have stayed at Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé, an abbey which received the donation of Ile Cado shortly after 1089. — 2) The Life of St. Gurthiern, transmitted in the Quimperlé Cartulary, includes a genealogy of the saint borrowed from different sources, particularly the Life of St. Cadoc and the genealogy of the Welsh king Vortigern (an homonym of the saint). The author puts forward a new hypothesis explaining those contacts between Welsh and Breton hagiographies.
