"The untimely death of Patrick Wormald in 2004 deprived thescholarly community of a brilliant historian best known for hismagisterial study of the development of English law during theAnglo-Saxon period. As the volume under review here clearly shows,Worrnald was also a leading figure in revising our understanding ofBede and his early medieval English cultural milieu."
-James Campbell, University of Oxford
"On display throughout ... is Wormald'sconsiderable intellect and erudition and in the earlier essays inparticular an enviable familiarity with Continental scholarship.There are also occasional flashes of the theater that was a Wormaldlecture." (Catholic Historical Review, October 2008)"This collection exemplifies the high qualities of scholarship,originality and forceful expression which characterized itslamented author. All serious work on Bede and his age has to reckonwith these papers!"
-Janet Nelson, Kings College London
"Patrick Wormald's research, driven for over more thanthirty years by the quest to understand and assess Bede, producedwork of a profound coherence and consistency. Here, then, is morethan a collection of classic papers. From two parts, on Bede as athinker who didn't so much reflect as reinflect his world,and on the afterlife of Bede's critique in later Anglo-SaxonEngland, is constructed something wondrously balanced and whole: amasterpiece of a book."
