Item Description...
Overview
Aelred of Rievaulx was an heir of Saxons living under Norman rule, a native speaker of English daily speaking French and Latin, a descendant of generations of married priests in an age when priests were forbidden to wed, an English monk in a French order, an abbot bred to service in the church but trained for service in the court. His sermons and treatises reflect Aelred the monk, the novice-master, and abbot. His historical works--concerned with the political world of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman England--seek to explore the past as a guide for the present and assurance of the future. Drawing on the Bible, the Fathers of the Church, classical writers like Cicero, and medieval historians such as the Venerable Bede and Symeon of Durham, Aelred insisted on the importance of history for guiding human action, declaring that the meaning of the past can be known only in the present and that only at the end can one understand the beginning. In this volume are four of Aelred's seven historical works: Lament for David, King of the Scots (1153), The Genealogy of the Kings of the English (1153,1154), The Life of Saint Edward, King and Confessor (1162-63), and The Battle of the Standard (1153-1154).

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Aelred of Rievaulx  Mar 17, 2006
This book is a fantastic source for scholars especially those with deficient or non-existent Latin skills. It contains four of Aelred's most important works, Lament for David King of Scots, The Genealogy of the Kings of the English, the Life of St Edward the Confessor and the Battle of the Standard. In some cases it is the first time that an English translation of the work is available. The translations themselves are excellent, being the work of the well respected scholar/translator Jane Patricia Freeland. Marsha Dutton, herself an expert on Aelred, provides an excellent introduction to the works covering topics such as Aelred's biography, a comentary on each of the works, the historical context and the extant manuscripts. It is a great book that makes the major works of Aelred of Rievaulx far more readily available.
