This survey of Bede's life and works, aims both to elucidate the context in which Bede wrote and to serve as a reference guide to the many works in a variety of genres which survive. An introductory chapter sets out what we know of Bede's own life and his monastery of Wearmouth. The bulk of the book however is dedicated to summaries and analyses of Bede's many works, organised into sectoins by genre - educational works, Biblical commentaries, homilies, hagiography, martyrology, poems and letters, and finaly the histories for which he is now most famed. The book concludes with a brief examination of Bede's posthumous reputation and reception through the later Middle Ages.
