9780521480772: Archbishop Theodore: Commemorative Studies on his Life and Influence (Cambridge Studies in Anglo-Saxon England)

Theodore, Archbishop of Canterbury (668SH90), shaped the English Church into a structure it has retained for a millennium. Yet until recently he has remained a shadowy figure, whose early career in the Near East and at Rome has been unknown. In this book, which builds on the 1994 publication of previously unprinted Biblical commentaries from Theodore's Canterbury school, internationally distinguished scholars provide a fresh account of the career and writings of a unique personality who brought to Anglo-Saxon England the cultural heritage of Syria, Byzantium and Rome.

From the Back Cover:

Theodore, archbishop of Canterbury (668-90), was a monk of Greek origin and extraordinary learning, who shaped the English church into a structure it retained for a millennium. Yet until recently he has remained a shadowy figure, whose early career in the Near East and at Rome has been wholly unknown. The recent publication of previously unprinted biblical commentaries from Theodore's Canterbury school has helped to clarify the picture. Building on these commentaries, this new book presents a detailed investigation of the now available evidence and establishes Theodore's cultural and spiritual background and the formation of his learning. It draws on the expertise of scholars across a wide range of disciplines to provide a fresh account of Theodore's career and writings on such diverse subjects as canon law, penitential literature, liturgy and Latin rhythmical verse - revealing a unique personality who brought to Anglo-Saxon England the cultural heritage of Syria, Byzantium and Rome.

Review:

"This book makes an important contribution to our understanding of seventh-century Anglo-Saxon ecclesiastical history." Albion

"These essays are all of high calibre and the editor is to be congratulated upon gathering them." Anglican Theological Review

"The book is scholarship at its most austere, but it is pervaded by a sense of barely suppressed excitement in almost all the contributions....The book opens vistas that promise rich results for the history of the early Middle Ages...." Eric John, Catholic Historical Review

"The volume as a whole is a fitting tribute to the great Archbishop and will be especially enlightening to the Anglo-Saxonist used to thinking of the English Church only in relation to its Celtic and Roman counterparts." The Canadian Catholic Review

"...first-rate and sheds interesting new light on an obscure corner of early medieval religious and intellectual culture." John J. Contreni, Religious Studies Review
