Bede: History of the English Church and People

Bede: History of the English Church and People

  • Description

    In 731, at the Northumbrian foundation of Jarrow, a monk named Bede completed a masterpiece of historical scholarship, the sophistication of which would not be equalled for centuries. Bede’s aim was to record the history of the Church in England. His achievement was far greater, for he created a complete history, not just of the Church but of the people of England, from the arrival of Julius Caesar to the 8th century.

    We owe most of our knowledge of this period to Bede’s work; it is without doubt the most valuable chronicle of Anglo-Saxon England in existence and the cornerstone of English history.
