This collection provides a new, authoritative and challenging study of the life and works of �lfric of Eynsham, the most important vernacular religious writer in the history of Anglo-Saxon England. The contributors include almost all of the key �lfric scholars working today and some important newer voices. Each of the chapters is a cutting-edge piece of work which addresses one aspect of �lfric's works or career. The chapters are organised topically, rather than by chronology, genre or biography, and between them cover the entire �lfrician corpus and the major contextual issues; consideration of �lfric's Latin writings is carefully integrated with that of his Old English works. �lfric studies are currently a central element of Anglo-Saxon studies, but while to date there has been a great deal of detailed work on some aspects of �lfric, this collection provides the first overview.
