257/366 Book of the Week

I am reading a book that I’ve wanted to read for quite a long time. I’ve hunted for it several times and then a couple of weeks ago whilst browsing Amazon, The Ecclesiastical History of the English People, written by The Venerable Bede in the year 735.

I can no more explain to you why I am interested in Bede and his writings. I have written before about my interest in history how it was taken away, and how I have gained it back.

The book was written in Latin, and so is a translation. It is an easy read so far, and the early chapters are covering events between the Roman occupation and Bede’s era. It is an interesting read, giving us a perspective on geographical knowledge of the time. Bede talks about the positioning of Ireland, where he says that It’s southerly extent reaches down to Spain.

In comparison to today, obviously, life in those times would have been very tough. At the moment, each chapter isn’t very long sometimes less that a page. It is a fascinating read.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
