Product Description
The Coming of Christianity to Anglo-Saxon England - Henry Mayr-Harting

Softcover - 334 pages

“It is not often that a book which, on its first appearance, was acclaimed as the finest distillation of up-to-date knowledge on the subject, should have maintained its value for almost two decades. It is a tribute to Mayr-Harting’s remarkable insight into the period that this survey of the spread of Christianity in Dark Age Britain should remain a model account, relevant to the wider evolution of European religion and culture in the formative centuries of the Western Middle Ages. The new chapters and reflections make a masterpiece as fresh as it was on its first appearance. Here we have a sure and sympathetic guide into a turbulent yet surprisingly well-documented age.”

—Peter Brown, Princeton University

“The Coming of Christianity to Anglo-Saxon England is written in an elegant and expressive prose that can teach experts by attract students. It treats politics, religion, and culture in early Anglo-Saxon England more fully than any other book. Among its many virtues, however, first place must go to its ability to look at early England through eyes other than Bede’s.”

—Thomas F.X. Noble, University of Virginia
