England, Wales, and Cornwall
There is a very full tradition of vernacular adaptations of the Vita Adae in Middle English prose and verse. Prose versions are independent (as in the Vernon manuscript), or can be incorporated into collections such as the Gilte Legende. There are references in chronicles like that by John Capgrave. Metrical versions include the Canticum de creatione, and there are smaller allusions in the major mystery cycles. Welsh versions are known in prose and verse, but seem not to be connected with other Celtic versions. In the Cornish drama, there is much influence of the Holy Rood material, but little evidence of knowledge of the Vita Adae, although there are other Adam legends present.
