Anglo-Saxon Spirituality—Selected Writings

   
Translated and Introduced by Robert Boenig
Preface by Richard K. Emmerson

A volume of The Classics of Western Spirituality: A Library of the Great Spiritual Masters

“The Anglo-Saxon age extends from the mid 400s, when warriors from Germanic tribes in northwest Europe arrived in what we now call England as mercenary soldiers, through their gradual conversion to Christianity in the seventh century, to their downfall before the Norman cavalry brought to England in 1066 by William the Conqueror. For a little over six hundred years the Anglo-Saxons expressed themselves in songs and then in the writing their conversion to Christianity taught them. [...]This volume presents a wide-ranging selection of their writings both in poetry and in prose.”
