    Abstract

    The story of the monk and the devil forms part of the collection The monastery of Tallaght, edited by Gwynn & Purton (1911–12). This compilation of texts deals with the instructions and practices of Máel Rúain and his disciple Máel Díthruib(cf. Follett 2006: 101). According to Gwynn & Purton (1911–12: 121–2), it was composed between the death of Máel Rúain (AU²792), the founder of the Céli Dé, and the death of Mael Díthruib (FM840). On account of references to Díarmait, abbot of Iona (815–831), the date can be narrowed down further. This leads Follett (2006: 102) to propose a period of composition ranging from 815 to 840.
