Item Description...
Overview
The Venerable Bede completed the earliest history of Christianity in England early in the eighth century. In prose both fascinating and unique, Bede described the beginnings, development, and spread of Christianity in Britain. Now in this century, J. Robert Wright offers a comprehensive and reliable companion to the earlier historian's writings. A Companion to Bede allows readers to follow the major English translations of Bede's work, chapter by chapter and verse by verse, while still remaining faithful to the original Latin text. This guide enables readers to understand exactly what Bede is trying to say, what he means, and why his words and account remain so important. Wright seeks to provide answers to the questions careful readers ask. His focus - like Bede's own - in this volume is the church itself, in all its aspects, helping to explain the features in the history's narrative that Bede himself thought were the most significant. There are countless numbers of books and articles about Bede, but there is no other comprehensive companion to his text that can be read in tandem with Bede himself, illuminating his own meanings and intention.

a Companion to Bede: A Reader's Commentary on etc.  Feb 16, 2009
Wish I had had this book when I first read Bede. I am re-reading the Leo
Sherley-Price edition (the best in my opinion) and this 'Companion' is
great. A good addition to any collection on Bede.
 
Excellent read  Oct 5, 2008
A wonderful companion to Bede's original history of the English people written in the 8th century. Wright assists the reader in understanding the context of Bede's work.
It's a running commentary to accompany Bede.
