The Latin Texts
The Latin texts are usually treated together but there are five versions of the Latin texts, named Latin A, Latin B, Latin C, Latin D and Latin E by their editor, Hywel D. Emanuel. They were probably originally translations from some sort of Welsh legal texts, and a lost manuscript of Latin D was then translated back into Welsh to form the Blegywryd texts. The Latin texts are not entirely in Latin, but are peppered with Welsh words.
