Description

Bede's Latin writings had an enormous impact upon the intellectual landscape of the Middle Ages, both in his own lifetime (c. 673-735) and in the centuries after his death. This impact was felt especially strongly in Anglo-Saxon England and Carolingian Francia, but Bede continued to be relevant in several different contexts right through to the end of the Middle Ages. These sessions aim to explore the different intellectual contexts that either shaped or received Bede's writings. Session I will focus upon Bede's Latin writings in their contemporary contexts and their reception after Bede's death.
