"In a short span this book contrives to be a masterly introduction to one of the major figures of early English history, in all aspects of his scholarship and personality. Students and general readers will find it invaluable, while professional scholars, not least those interested in Bede the historian, will be very grateful for the survey of his scriptural writings. Sister Benedicta combines good judgement with an almost pretematural sympathy for her subject. Her style is lucid and readable, her choice of quotations inspired". Professor Henry Mayr-Harting, Regius Professor of Ecclesiastical History at the University of Oxford.
