St Bede the Venerable

Nenhum comentário


St Bede was born in the north of England, near the monastery of Wearmouth. He joined that monastery, and spent all his life there or at Jarrow, teaching and writing. He was the outstanding ecclesiastical author of his time. He wrote commentaries on Scripture; an ecclesiastical history of the English people; and the first martyrology to be compiled on historical principles. He was also the first known writer of English prose, though this has not survived. He died at Jarrow on 25 May 735, and was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1899. This window of the saint is in Covington Cathedral.
