The Venerable Bede's 'Ecclesiastical History of the English People' is considered to be one of the most important sources on Anglo-Saxon history, playing a key role in the development of an English national identity and establishing its author as 'The Father of English History'. Bede was a skilled linguist and translator and his work made the Latin and Greek writings of the early Church Fathers more accessible to his fellow Anglo-Saxons, contributing significantly to English Christianity. Delphi's Ancient Classics series provides the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This eBook presents Bede's complete extant historical works, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
