Description

A unique and important contribution to both teaching and scholarship by Professor Elaine Treharne, University of Leicester, this book is a collection of essays exploring a wide array of sources that show the importance of Christian ideas and influences in Anglo-Saxon England. The range of treatment is exceptionally diverse. Some of the essays develop new approaches to familiar texts, such as "Beowulf", "The Wanderer" and "The Seafarer"; others deal with less familiar texts and genres to illustrate the role of Christian ideas in a variety of contexts, from preaching to remembrance of the dead, and from the court of King Cnut to the monastic library. Some of the essays are informative, providing essential background material for understanding the nature of the Bible, or the distinction between monastic and cleric in Anglo-Saxon England; others provide concise surveys of material evidence or genres; others still show how themes can be used in constructing and evaluating courses teaching the tradition. The contributors include: Graham Caie, Paul Cavill, Catherine Cubitt, Judith Jesch, Richard Marsden, Elisabeth Okasha, Barbara C.Raw, Philippa Semper, Dabney Bankert, Santha Bhattacharji, Hugh Magennis, Mary Swan, Jonathan M. Wooding.
