9781846314957: Bede: On the Nature of Things and On Times (Translated Texts for Historians LUP)

The Venerable Bede composed On the Nature of Things (De natura rerum) and On Times (De temporibus) at the outset of his career, about AD 703. Bede fashioned himself as a teacher to his people and his age, and these two short works show him selecting, editing, and clarifying a mass of difficult and sometimes dangerous material. He insisted that his reader understand the mathematical and physical basis of time, and though he was dependent on his textual sources, he also included observations of his own. But Bede was also a Christian exegete who thought deeply and earnestly about how salvation-history connected to natural history and the history of the peoples of the earth. To comprehend his religious mentality, we have to take on board his views on "science"- and vice versa. On the Nature of Things is a survey of cosmology. Starting with Creation and the universe as a whole, Bede reads the cosmos downwards from the heavens, through the atmosphere, to the oceans and rivers of earth. This order (recapit

About the Author:


Calvin B. Kendall is Professor of English Emeritus, University of Minnesota. Faith Wallis is Associate Professor of History, McGill University, Montreal, Canada.

Review:

“Accurate, elegant, utterly clear and easily accessible, even for readers who lack expertise in the relevant disciplines. The commentaries and appendices shed floods of light on Bede’s mental processes and expertise, and will represent a very significant landmark in Bedan studies.”

(Michael Lapidge University of Cambridge)

“Like the other Bede translations in the Liverpool University Press’s Translated Texts for Historians series, this one is invaluable for its illuminating introduction, which gracefully and articulately places the primary texts within their essential contexts....The translation itself is extremely well produced: it stays close to the Latin yet employs the best in modern idioms....Scholars of Bede and the early Middle Ages will read these works with great interest for the light they throw on the organization of Bede’s thought and the larger trajectory of his biblical vision; historians of science, meanwhile, will enjoy having in so inviting a volume translations of two early medieval works that had a strong hold on understandings of chronology and cosmology up till modern times.”   (Scott DeGregorio Isis)

Descripción Liverpool University Press, United Kingdom, 2011. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The Venerable Bede composed On the Nature of Things (De natura rerum) and On Times (De temporibus) at the outset of his career, about AD 703. Bede fashioned himself as a teacher to his people and his age, and these two short works show him selecting, editing, and clarifying a mass of difficult and sometimes dangerous material. He insisted that his reader understand the mathematical and physical basis of time, and though he was dependent on his textual sources, he also included observations of his own. But Bede was also a Christian exegete who thought deeply and earnestly about how salvation-history connected to natural history and the history of the peoples of the earth. To comprehend his religious mentality, we have to take on board his views on science -- and vice versa. On the Nature of Things is a survey of cosmology. Starting with Creation and the universe as a whole, Bede reads the cosmos downwards from the heavens, through the atmosphere, to the oceans and rivers of earth. This order (recapitulating the four elements or fire, air, water and earth) was derived from his main source, Isidore of Seville s On the Nature of Things. However, Bede separated out Isidore s chapters on time, and dealt with them in On Times. On Times, like its second, revised and enlarged edition The Reckoning of Time (De temporum ratione), works upwards from the smallest units of time, through the day and night, the week, month and year, to the world-ages. Bede s innovation is to introduce a practical manual of Easter reckoning, or computus, into this survey. Hidden beneath the matter-of-fact surface of the work is an intense polemic about the correct principles for determining the date of Easter -- principles which in Bede s view are bound up with both the integrity of nature as God s creation, and the theological significance of Christ s death and resurrection. In these works Bede re-united cosmology and time-reckoning to form a unified science of computus that would become the framework for Carolingian and Scholastic basic scientific education.
