Bede's Ecclesiastical History is the main source for early medieval English history; without it there would be little to say about English history in the period. In Re-Reading Bede, N. J. Hingham offers a fresh reading of Bede's history, looking at its internal construction, its political, social and cultural values and what light it throws on the history of the period, especially in the heroes it presents and the conversion of England to Christianity.
