The Ecclesiastical History of the English Nation

By Bede | Go to book overview

valley, where the tombs of the patriarchs are enclosed with a square wall, their heads lying to the north. Each of the tombs is covered with a single stone, white, and worked like the stones of a church for three patriarchs. Adam's is of more mean and common workmanship, and lies not far from them at the farthest northern extremity. There are also some poorer and smaller monuments of three women. The hill Mamre is a thousand paces from the monuments, and is very full of grass and flowers, having a flat plain on the top. In the northern part of it, Abraham's oak, being a stump about twice as high as a man, is enclosed in a church. Thus much have we collected from the works of the aforesaid writer, keeping to the sense of his words, but more briefly delivered, and have thought fit to insert in our history. Whosoever desires to see more of the contents of that book, may see it either in the same, or in that which we have lately epitomized from it.


CHAPTER XVIII.
THE SOUTH-SAXONS RECEIVED EADBERHT AND EOLLA, AND THE
WEST-SAXONS, DANIEL AND ALDHELM, FOR THEIR BISHOPS. OF
THE WRITINGS OF THE SAME ALDHELM.

In the year of the incarnation of our Lord 705, Aldfrid, king of the Northumbrians, died just before the end of the twentieth year of his reign. His son Osred, a boy about eight years of age, succeeding him in the throne, reigned eleven years. In the beginning of his reign, Haeddi, bishop of the West-Saxons, departed to the heavenly kingdom; for he was a good and just man, and exercised his episcopal duties rather by his innate love of virtue, than by what he had gained from learning. The most reverend prelate, Pecthelm, of whom we shall speak

A. D. 705.
