Some traditional treatments of hearing problems in Brittany and Wales.
Welsh Hearing Institute, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
The traditions of the healing of deafness associated with the Celtic saints in Brittany and Wales are discussed. Many more have survived in Brittany because of the religious continuity in that country. Three Saints Cadoc (of Welsh origin), Egarec (of Irish origin) and Meriadec (of Breton origin) are associated with such traditions in a number of different locations.
