Excerpt from Chapters of Early English Church History

The following Chapters are an expansion of Lectures which have been delivered to my Class, while we had Bede's History before us with a view to the Theological Final School. Wishing to connect them, in their present form, with their original purpose, I have retained a few colloquial phrases, and a few local allusions, which seemed natural in addressing a number of Oxford students, of whom several were personally well known to me.

The first or introductory Chapter is devoted to the history of the ancient British Church. The general subject of the rest of the volume is the Age of the Conversion of the old-english people to Christianity a great, though comparatively a brief period, extending but little beyond a century, and closing naturally with the death, in 709, of their greatest native Bishop, him self the evangelizer of those among them who, from a peculiar isolation, were the last to receive the Faith.
