Description

The Illustrated Bede offers new translations of Bede, the legendary eighth-century English historian, whose writings tell of the land and the people of "an island in the Ocean, " of the warlords who forged the Saxon kingdoms, and the abbots and abbesses, hermits and holy men who dominated the dawn of English Christianity. The first English history to be written by an Englishman and the incomparable chronicle of Northumbria's golden age, it has been read for more than twelve hundred and fifty years. Bede's writings are splendidly illustrated with full-color photographs of the wealth of masonry and manuscript surviving from his time and of landscapes that he himself would have recognized.
