Abstract: This volume contains a critical edition of the Old Irish law tract Córus Bésgnai (The Arrangement of Discipline), one of the constituent tracts of the late seventh-century compilation Senchas Már (The Great Tradition). It has taken the editor a very long time to bring this work to completion, but the result is a highly accurate and informative edition representing the highest standard of scholarship in early Irish language and law.
