The Anglo-Saxon Missionaries in Germany

By C. H. Talbot

This book is in good condition. There is some wear to the front, back and spine of the cover boards and also some staining. The edges of the cover boards are worn and the corners are bumped.The pages are yellowed and tanned but free of any markings. "The texts gathered together in the present volume provide a cross-section of the religious life of the eighth century difficult to parallel elsewhere. Two biographies of the archbishops who initiated the missionary enterprise on the Continent show how their labours transformed the face of Europe within the space of a single generation, whilst the life of one of their disciples illustrates how their work was continued. The correspondence of St. Boniface bring into closer focus the kind of difficulties they encountered and introduces us into the homely atmosphere of their friends, relatives, and well-wishers. Two further biographies, one of the abbot of the first monastery to be founded in Germany, the other of the abbess Leoba, give an illuminating picture of the beginnings of monastic life amidst barbarian surroundings and throw light on the characters and attainments of the men and women who embarked on this hazardous adventure. Finally, the description of Willibald's travels through Italy, the Greek archipelago and the Holy Land show the devotion, allied to a spirit of adventure, which animated these early pilgrims and missionaries. Bishops, priests, monks, nuns and simple clerics flit through these pages and tell us their unvarnished tale, which, slight though it may be in certain cases, deeply impresses by contrast with the grim background against which it unfold...." - General Introduction from The Anglo-Saxon Missionaries in Germany

The seven essays examine different aspects of the Middle Ages, and the book includes 131 illustrations, many of them in colour." - The High Middle Ages in Germany
