This is a bit of a dry read but very good for anyone who wants to know more about The Venerable Bede and why he was important for Anglo-Saxon England.

This seems to me to give a very good context for the study of the world of Bede. I enjoyed reading it and am sure I will return to it many times (and not just the parts about Wearmouth-Jarrow, which is close to me geographically and intellectually). Pleasing to see that a new printing has been required!
