  5. Bede's Ecclesiastical History

    Bede's Ecclesiastical History

    $34.95

    "Ecclesiastical History of the English People by Bede" is a key work for historians, church historians and intelligent lay readers. Here is the perfect introduction. Bede's best known work, "An Ecclesiastical History of the English People", was written in Latin and is not immediately easy to understand and follow. And yet it is a key text for any student of English history. Rowan Williams shows in his introduction how Bede works to create a sense of national destiny for the new English kingdoms of the seventh century, a sense that has helped to shape English self-awareness through the centuries, by using the imagery both of imperial Rome and of biblical Israel. But Bede also wrestles with the difficult question of how the Church relates to and serves the political order. The attraction and fascination of his work is partly in seeing the tension between the strategic use of wealth and political power for religious ends and the example of self-effacing service and simplicity of life offered by some of Bede's greatest Christian heroes. The issues around these questions are not academic or antiquarian.Understanding Bede is a key to understanding British society in the present as well as the past. Learn More

    Lewis Ayres offers a new account of the most important century in the development of Christian belief after Christ.
