Sample text

Wilfrid and Cuthbert (d. 687); and Book V brings the history up to the year of its completion, 731. The most familiar passages are the story of Gregory the Great and the Introduction 19 English boys for sale in the Roman slave market (II, 1; see Frantzen 1997); at the conversion of Northumbria, the pagan counselor’s comparison of life to the flight of a sparrow through a hall (II, 13; see Toswell 2000); and the story of Cædmon’s miraculous gift of song (IV, 24; see chapter 7). Bede’s history has been much admired both for its orthodoxy and its historical method.

Because its vocabulary is the chief distinctive characteristic of verse, poets composed in a manner suitable to maximize the density of poetic diction. This was accomplished by the fertile use of appositives. For example, in the passage from Andreas quoted above, the only poetic compounds appear in appositive phrases, beorht blǣd-gifa amplifying æðelinga helm, and tō ðām meðel-stede amplifying in bold ōðer and him togēanes. 48 In inferior compositions, variation tends to be aimless and the compounds entirely conventional.

It might even be argued that lay religious fervor put an end to Anglo-Saxon England, because the ascetic Edward the Confessor produced no heir, thus provoking the dispute over the succession that led to the Norman Conquest. Whether or not that is an accurate assessment, it is certainly true that in the tenth and eleventh centuries we see evidence of a religious fervor among the laity such as we do not encounter at any earlier period in England. The evidence of lay literacy at this period points to pious purposes as its chief motivation.
