He corresponded with monks at other monasteries across Britain, and even sent the Bishop of London to research the papal archives in Rome on his behalf.

He wrote the seminal 'History of the English Church and People', was the first English person to use the term 'English', two centuries before England would be united, popularised the AD/BC dating system we use today, devised the method we use to calculate when Easter falls and worked out how the moon affects the tides.

Even if his viewpoint and main interest was for the ecclesiastical side to the history of the English, his works are of great interest to us.

Bede was the first historian to attempt a history of the English.

It appears that he spent his entire adult life at the monastery in Jarrow, Northumbria. He called himself Baeda, but soon after his death we find Hac sunt in fossa Bedae, while by 835 he is called Beda.

The title Venerabilis (‘the Venerable’) seems to have come within two generations after his death.

Born in AD 673, on land that would form part of the monastery estates, Bede was only 7 when he was sent to join the monks at Wearmouth.

Although he never left the area, his gift for collecting and connecting information gave him a truly unique view of the world.
