The World of Bede is an engaging and accessible introduction to the writings and intellectual development of the venerable Bede (d. 735), first historian of the English and one of the greatest scholars of the Middle Ages. Originally published in 1970 and out of print for many years, the book remains a minor classic of historical writing, now made available again for the enjoyment of all those interested in the early medieval world. A new preface and supplementary bibliography by Michael Lapidge have brought the book up to date.

Book Description:

Originally published in 1970 and out of print for many years, this reissue renders a minor classic of historical writing accessible again. Bede (d. 735) was the first English historian and one the greatest scholars of the Middle Ages.

Review:

"In the foreword, Michael Lapidge, who supervised the reprinting, says, 'Hunter Blair's book stands up well to the passage of time: being concerned with Bede himself and not with the industry of Bede scholarship.' Anyone (such as this reviewer) who read this book twenty years ago and who has just returned to it will agree....This remains a fine book." Joseph F. Kelly, Church History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. An engaging and accessible introduction to the writings and intellectual development of the Venerable Bede (d.735), this book (originally published in 1970) is available again for the enjoyment of all those interested in the early medieval world. With an updated preface and supplementary bibliography by Michael Lapidge, the book is based almost entirely on primary sources, particularly Bede's own writings. The book surveys the fragmented state of Britain after the Anglo-Saxon conquests, tracing the - sometimes faltering - rebirth of Christianity from the time of St. Augustine through to the glories of the golden age of Northumbria in the eighth century. What was Bede's contribution to the growth of scholarship? Why is his famous Ecclesiastical History of the English Church and People still so highly regarded? How did Bede see his own age? What traditions most influenced him? Peter Hunter Blair answers all these questions, assessing Bede sympatheticaly in all the fields in which he was active, as teacher, orthographer, moral philospher, grammarian, theologian, natural scientist and, above all, as our first modern historian.
