Bede's ecclesiastical history of the English people

Bede's ecclesiastical history of the English people

Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People was completed in 731 and still ranks among the most popular of history books. First published in 1969, Colgrave and Mynors's edition made use for the first time of the mid-eighth-century manuscript now in Leningrad and provided a survey of the extant manuscripts and a new translation; it also brought up to date Plummer's invaluable edition. This revised edition takes into account J.M. Wallace-Hadrill's Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People: A Historical Commentary (Oxford Medieval Texts, 1988), enabling the reader to use the two in conjunction.
