The volume contains a series of papers delivered at the University of Bonn on the occasion of an international symposium entitled »150 Years of the Mabinogion: German-Welsh Cultural Relations«, which took place there on 26--29 May 1999. Of the 20 articles, some concentrate on those medieval Welsh narratives known since Lady Charlotte Guest's translation (completed 1849) as the »Mabinogion«, while others address the history of German-Welsh relations as reflected in literature, art and music on the one hand and the scholarly study of Celtic literature on the other.
