Venerable Bede


“Who was the Venerable Bede, and why was he significant?”

Venerable Bede or Saint Bede was known (after death) as a great author and is best known for his book: The Ecclesiastical History of the English People and because of it, he is known as the father of English History. Saint Bede was put into sainthood at a young age and was a certified saint by the age of thirty. His favorite activities were teaching and writing. He studied Latin and the Bible because Latin was supposedly the language of the Bible as well as the other books in his possession. He became ill at sixty-two and died shortly after completing some of his final works. In my opinion, he was significant because he was the father of English History. Doesn’t that seem significant enough?
