Bede is remembered chiefly for his “Ecclesiastical History of the English People”. This five volume work records events in Britain from the raids by Julius Caesar in 55-54 BC to the arrival of the first missionary from Rome, Saint Augustine in 597. Bede’s writings are considered the best summary of this period of history ever prepared. Some have called it “the finest historical work of the early Middle Ages.”
