"The purport of the following pages is to exhibit, in one view, the various features of the ancient Church of Cymru during its metropolitical existence....The work, as the title denotes, divides itself into three main parts, treating respectively of the history, rites, and doctrine of the Church....The materials used for this purpose are chiefly obtained from the traditions and regulations of that ancient institution, repeatedly sanctioned as they were at different congresses. The history of the Church extends down to the end of the twelfth century, and is , and is principally drawn from the Genealogies of the Saints, and the Bruts, or Chronicles of Wales."
