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 explores themes relating to communication, language, and identity. Papers cover: the underutilised Letters of Bede (Darby); the exchange of sources that helped to shape the chronicle in De temporum ratione (Lin); and Bede’s views on languages and communication (Tinti).
