Manx language, member of the Goidelic group of Celtic languages, formerly spoken on the Isle of Scottish Gaelic, Manx was an offshoot of Irish, and it is closely related to the easternmost dialects of Irish and to Scottish. The earliest record of the Manx language is a version of the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, translated into Manx in by a Welsh bishop who used an orthography. His contribution to this was the production of this book, the first selection of Manx poetry that had ever been produced. Cubbon hoped that the book would: “become a factor in the present revival of the Manx national spirit initiated by the late A. W. Moore, sometime Speaker of the House of Keys, and by the genius of Thomas Edward Brown.”.
