History and Texts

The foundations of Vortigern Studies are based not only in the sources, but also in their use. Here we find discussions about texts and the historical interpretations.

Also, I have printed the relevant parts of the sources about Vortigern, from Gildas to Gibbon. The text of the sources dealing specifically with Vortigern are in this section, but the text of the sources dealing with British history of the 4-6th centuries can be found in the Sources section.

However, to avoid confusion all texts are shown in both sections.

This picture, from the 9th-century Book of Kells, probably shows St. Matthew. The Opening Words of St. Matthews's Gospel, folio 29r.
