Sample text

The primary way in which Llwyd does this in the Breviary is to argue for the importance of the Welsh language. According to Llwyd, Welsh provides the only means to uncover the reality about the ancient past of the island. He represents Welsh as the key that unlocks the ‘truth’ about the British History. For example, he writes at the opening of the Breviary: I purpose to entreate a lytle of the knowledge of the Britysh tongue, of the signification of the Letters, and the maner of pronouncinge the same.

Llwyd also translates from Roman histories that charted the conquest of Britain. Here he shows how the ancient Britons were heroes because of their courage in resisting the Romans. As Llwyd reveals, the Roman colonizers themselves praised the Britons for their bravery. Caesar, for example, wrote that ‘the Britaynes fought valiantly agaynst the Romans, and that they troubled them very much’ (sig. M4v). Tacitus also commended ‘the puissant deedes of Cataracus, agaynst the people of Rome’ (sig. M4r).
