Christ the Golden-blossom: A Treasury of Anglo-Saxon Prayer (Hardback)Douglas Dales (editor)
Hardback Published: 01/08/2001
- Not available
Exquisite imagery and lightly-worn theological learning characterise these prayers and readings from a golden era of the church in Britain. Many are translated for the first time, enabling us to join our voices with Augustine, Alcuin, Dunstan, Bede, Cuthbert, Aidan, Hilda and others whose influence on church and society lives on. It was a period of extraordinary artistic achievement and contemporary illustrations appear throughout. Arranged round the Christian year, commemorating the major seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter and Pentecost and principal saints' days, this is a book to enrich private devotion and public worship. Consice biographies of the saintly men and women of the Anglo-Saxon era complete a vivid picture of the way English-speaking Christians prayed a thousand years ago.
