Here is a new and original collection of readings from the rich spiritual heritage of the Anglo-Saxons. An ever-growing number of people are exploring their roots in Anglo-Saxon England. This new and original collection invites us all to enjoy the rich spiritual heritage that has been handed down by the Anglo-Saxons. This was a time of peace and plenty when men had time to devote their energies to the glory of God, through buildings, manuscripts and religious debate. The roots of rural life in England were planted here. The feudal system and the monastery were to endure for centuries, supported by Christian beliefs. Even the exalted position of the village blacksmith stems from the Anglo-Saxon belief that Jesus had been a smith. A Treasury of Anglo-Saxon England weaves together a narrative that describes the daily life of this era with profound and moving texts that illustrate the people's life and beliefs. Contents include Anglo-Saxon creativity and traditions, the pattern of working life for labourers and monks, as well as more well-known lives of saints, kings and warriors.About the Author:
Paul Cavill is the author of Anglo-Saxon Christianity and Vikings. He lectures in Anglo-Saxon Literature at the University of Nottingham.
