Images of Sanctity in Eddius Stephanus' "Life of Bishop Wilfred", an Early English Saint's Life (Paperback)

Synopsis

This study shows that the narrative sources for early Anglo-Saxon church history reveal more than insights into the ecclesiastical and dynastic struggles of the time. It explores the Life of Bishop Wilfrid, an 8th-century account of a famous Anglo-Saxon abbot and bishop of Hexham, with an eye to exposing and analyzing the convictions of Wilfrid's biographer. Argues that the portrayal of Wilfrid's seemingly abrasive brand of sanctity approximates more closely the New Testament image of the holy man than other early English portrayals, especially the first portrayal of St. Cuthbert. This study should interest specialists in church and medieval history, patristics, and theological students and laypersons who have never considered that medieval Saints' Lives, like the Gospels, are compelling theological texts in their own right.
