Средневековые правовые триады
The article is devoted to the legal triads of Medieval Wales. Triads were the special genre of Medieval Welsh literature. The legal triad collections were found in the Welsh manuscripts of 13-15* centuries which contain one of the three redactions of The Law of Hywel Dda. Triads are one of the striking features of the medieval Welsh legal texts. There are reasons to believe that towards the end of the 13th century, the lawbooks were used mainly as mnemonic aids in the educational process and legal triads might testify in favour of this version. The legal triad collections, which complemented the lawbooks, normally did not contain any new legal material with regard to the texts.
