Beuno was a seventh-century abbot, active in eastern and north-western Wales. The fourteenth-century Middle Welsh Life of St Beuno is an attractive literary text which is also important historically, being based on a lost Latin original, as shown in the comprehensive introduction to this edition. As the language of the text is unusually simple, the edition is accompanied by a Short Grammar of Middle Welsh and a full glossary so that it can be used by complete beginners.

Patrick Sims-Williams is the author of several books including Religion and Literature in Western England 600–800, The Celtic Inscriptions of Britain, and Irish Influence on Medieval Welsh Literature.
