Sample text

From the earliest days, ecclesi­ astical and secular power often went hand in hand: many monasteries were founded and presided over by wealthy noblemen (and occasionally ­noblewomen) and those men who attained the rank of bishop enjoyed ­significant ­economic benefits. The same period that witnessed the establishment of Gregory’s episcopal system also witnessed the growth of the monastic system. As an organizing Ecclesiastical History principle for monastic communities, the rule of St Benedict was favoured from early on, and while it provided the foundation for the rules of many monasteries, during this period it did not have the influence on monastic life and thought that it would come to have during the reformation of the tenth century.

His fleet of perhaps sixty ships sailed to the Humber, but there he suffered a defeat that caused him to retreat to Scotland, where he awaited the arrival of the Norwegian claimant to the throne, Harold of Norway. The Norwegians were victorious at the battle of Fulford on 20 September, but fell just five days later to Harold Godwinson’s forces at the battle of Stamford Bridge, in which both Harold of Norway and Tostig were killed. So complete was the English victory that only twenty-four of the Norwegian’s fleet of 300 ships were required to carry the survivors back to Norway.

Although Anglo-Saxon vernacular literary history’s origin may be lost in the mists of time, we can with some certainty single out King Alfred the Great as one of the key figures, and perhaps the key figure, in its ­development. His military and political successes helped establish a period of relative ­stability, but England in the ninth century did not enjoy a golden era of peace and prosperity: the threat of the Vikings remained acute and the possibility of renewed hostilities was always present.
