A much needed modern English translation of these often neglected prose works. Contains translations of works such as the Old English version of Apollonius of Tyre, Life of Saint Guthlac, Christian homilies, sermons, wills, charters and the Alfredian prefaces.

I really loved the homilies and hagiographical writings in this book. I was unfamiliar with the life of St. Guthlac of Crowland, but this book has endeared me to him (Also known as the St. Anthony the Great of England). The account of St. Edmund the Martyr was also moving. As far as the fragments of informational text, they are probably more interesting to a historian. Whatever the case, this book is definitely worth reading if only for the life of St. Guthlac.
