Historic Welsh language law document

1 post in this topic

A 1563 legal document that helped protect the Welsh language has been found in the House of Commons archives.

Queen Elizabeth I introduced a law which required Welsh churches to hold Welsh translations of the Book of Common Prayer and the Bible.

Some historians believe the legislation protected the future of the language.
