Abstract

This strand explores the cultural and intellectual contexts that shaped the production or reception of Bede’s works. Session IV explores 3 different posthumous contexts: paper -a (Ryan) explores the ecclesiastical landscape of Anglo-Saxon England immediately after Bede’s death by considering the life and writings of Ecgberht of York; paper -b (Rowley) shows how parts of Bede’s Ecclesiastical History were recast to create a nexus of cultural influence in the late-9th- or early-10th-century Old English version of that work; paper -c (Heath) examines the reception of Bede’s homiletic writings in the homiliary of the Carolingian monk Paul the Deacon.
