Abstract

Building on sessions which have run at the IMC consecutively since 2011, this year two panels are proposed on the subject of ‘Interactions in the Age of Bede’ (broadly defined to cover the period c. 600-750). This panel focusses on direct interactions with the Scriptures. Papers cover: interactions with the Hebrew language by Bede and his contemporaries (Fleming); Bede’s use of the Gospel of John in his homiletic works (Cremin); and Bede’s interactions with Old Latin texts of the Bible (Gallagher).
