Description

Bede is without doubt one of the most important Anglo-Saxon writers and thinkers. Though the Bedan corpus is entirely in Latin, it exerted an important and complex influence on later Anglo-Saxon literature and culture. This panel will invite contributors to explore Bede not only as a thinker in his own right, but also as a source for vernacular culture in later Anglo-Saxon England. This panel will also coincide with the release of a SASLC volume on Bede, and will celebrate Bede's influence on later Anglo-Saxon literature and culture.
