The Ecclesiastical History of the English People: The Greater Chronicle – Bede’s Letter to Egbert (2009)

“The Ecclesiastical History of the English People; The Greater Chronicle; Bede’s Letter to Egbert (Oxford World’s Classics)” 1st Edition by Bede, & edited by Judith McClure & Roger Collins

The Ecclesiastical History of the English People (731 AD) is Bede’s most famous work.

As well as providing the authoritative Colgrave translation of the Ecclesiastical History, this edition includes a new translation of the Greater Chronicle, in which Bede examines the Roman Empire and contemporary Europe.

His Letter to Egbert gives his final reflections on the English Church just before his death, and all three texts here are further illuminated by a detailed introduction and explanatory notes.
