As is remarked in the Introduction to this book, all quotations of Bede in this Companion, unless otherwise noted, are taken from the (latest) “Oxford World’s Classics” 1999 paperback reissue of Bede: The Ecclesiastical History of the English People, edited by Judith McClure and Roger Collins and published by Oxford University Press, which is hereby recommended as being the version that is most useful and readily available.

Latham, with new introduction and notes by D. H. Farmer. This Companion can be easily used by readers of either the Oxford or Penguin editions. Those who wish to follow the Latin critical text, with facing English translation, are directed to Bertram Colgrave and R. A. B. Mynors, Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People in the Oxford Medieval Texts series (Oxford: Clarendon, first published in 1969). The translation found in the Oxford paperback edited by McClure and Collins is actually that of Colgrave and Mynors, but improved with corrections. Prepared to accompany the scholarly Latin text of McClure and Collins, and also quite scholarly in content, is J. M. Wallace-Hadrill, Bede’s Ecclesiastical History: A Historical Commentary, Oxford Medieval Texts (Oxford: Clarendon, 1988).
