Making of Modern Law legal treatises.
King Cormac Mac Art, during his retirement at Aicill, ... enunciated a certain number of legal precepts, which had been handed down from the most ancient times by the poets, in the Berla, or poetic dialect ... A new treatise, consisting of ten chapters, was added to the old textbok by Cennfaeladh, 642 A.D., and he also probably re-edited the entire work.--Cf. Introd. "In bringing this little work before the public, the writer has endeavoured to put into an intelligible shape the disjointed and often contradictory text which constitutes the Book of Aicill, and which, thanks to the labours of O'Donovan and O'Curry, has been produced and translated in its original form"--Pref.
