 Our Description

St. Bede [673-735] was offered as a child to an abbey in England. He spent his life "always writing, always praying, always reading, always teaching". His principal study was the Bible but he is called the "Father of English History" for his book, The Ecclesiastical History of the English People. He popularized dating the modern calendar from the incarnation of Christ. St. Bede is a Doctor of the Church, archetype of the monk and model of the scholar. He is shown writing at his desk. His symbols are a book, a pen and a jug. His feast is May 25.

    * 25 May
    * formerly 27 May


    Born around the time England was finally completely Christianized. Raised from age seven in the abbey of Saints Peter and Paul at Wearmouth-Jarrow, and lived there the rest of his life. Benedictine monk. Spiritual student of the founder, Saint Benedict Biscop. Ordained in 702 by Saint John of Beverley. Teacher and author, he wrote about history, rhetoric, mathematics, music, astronomy, poetry, grammar, philosophy, hagiography, homiletics, and Bible commentary.

    He was known as the most learned man of his day, and his writings started the idea of dating this era from the incarnation of Christ. The central theme of Bede’s Historia Ecclesiastica is of the Church using the power of its spiritual, doctrinal, and cultural unity to stamp out violence and barbarism. Our knowledge of England before the 8th century is mainly the result of Bede’s writing. He was declared a Doctor of the Church on 13 November 1899 by Pope Leo XIII.
