A rich feast of scholarship with many discoveries and new interpretations of great value for Anglo-Saxon history. SPECULUM Cuthbert, saintly bishop of Holy Island in the seventh century, was also a figure of great political and territorial power, in his life and even more so after his death. Several early Lives of him were written, two by Bede himself, and his tomb attracted sumptuous treasures. The community founded by Cuthbert revered him as perpetual guardian and landowner, and he was credited with making one king and inspiring the loyalty of others, not least of Alfred. The studies in this book, ranging over the saint's life, Lindisfarne and its manuscripts, the treasures of the coffin, and the Community and the cult, vividly convey Cuthbert's great influence, and his significance in the early history of England.
