 "Ecclesiastical History of the English Nation" by Bede

A forgotten, but important historian for us to look to is the Venerable Bede. Bede (7th century) wrote much earlier than Foxe and his history is very important to understand British and Christian history.

I think it is amazing that men who live at such a late date feel free to discount men who lived much closer to the time of Christ. Much earlier information was available to Bede than is available to us today in many respects.

Don't let haughty men discourage you from learning from a man with much greater humility and authority regarding what he has written. Here's the link:

Bede's work is fascinating as it draws on many, now lost, sources. However it is full of superstition and legend too. He was strongly pro the Roman version of Christianity as opposed to the Celtic. It would good to bear in mind his bias when reading his 'history'. His 'church history' comments in particular should be treated with caution.

He represents a 'christianity' which is already well astray from the biblical records. I think the materials we now have to hand give us a much better chance of understanding church history than Bede ever had.

I would heartily recommend [url=http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0006281532/qid=1120646203/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/103-4585303-0976659?v=glance&s=books&n=507846]Rediscovering the Celts[/url] by Martin Robinson. It is a sober look at the origins of Christianity in the UK with some valuable afterthoughts.
