A Companion to Bede allows readers to follow the major English translations of Bede's work, chapter by chapter and verse by verse, while still remaining faithful to the original Latin text. This guide enables readers to understand exactly what Bede is trying to say, what he means, and why his words and account remain so important. Wright seeks to provide answers to the questions careful readers ask. His focus — like Bede's own — in this volume is the church itself, in all its aspects, helping to explain the features in the history's narrative that Bede himself thought were the most significant.
There are countless numbers of books and articles about Bede, but there is no other comprehensive companion to his text that can be read in tandem with Bede himself, illuminating his own meanings and intention.
