about

The Venerable Bede’s ‘Ecclesiastical History of the English People’ is considered to be one of the most important sources on Anglo-Saxon history, playing a key role in the development of an English national identity and establishing its author as ‘The Father of English History’. Bede was a skilled linguist and translator and his work made the Latin and Greek writings of the early Church Fathers more accessible to his fellow Anglo-Saxons, contributing significantly to English Christianity.
