"The Ecclesiastical History of the English People" is considered one of the most important documents of Anglo-Saxon history. The work is chiefly concerned with the conflict between Roman and Celtic Christianity from the time of Julius Caesar until the time of the books completion circa 731 AD. In drawing upon numerous primary and secondary resources Bede creates not only an important historical document in "The Ecclesiastical History of the English People" but also a work in which he attempts to advance his own views on politics and religion. One of the most important works of both English and Christian history, "The Ecclesiastical History of the English People" is a must read for scholars or students of either historical discipline.

Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, completed in 731, is a masterpiece of historical writing. Bede's clear narrative, his scrupulous sifting of evidence and his vigorous pursuit of information from many sources written and oral are all features which commend themselves to modern readers. The work was read in every part of Europe throughout the Middle Ages, and today it still remains the best-known text to have survived from Anglo-Saxon England. From its pages we learn the stories of Edwin and Oswald, Cuthbert and Caedmon, and many more which have become an indelible part of English national consciousness. The present edition, first published in 1969, is recognized as standard and authoritative: its text is based on all the important early witnesses (including, for the first time, the 'Leningrad Bede'), and the Introduction contains Sir Roger Mynors's classic account of the work's complex manuscript transmission. A number of printer's errors has now been corrected, and marginal cross-references to discussion in J. M. Wallace-Hadrill Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People (Oxford Medieval Texts, 1988) have been added.About the Author:
