Northumbria was, during the 7th and 8th centuries, the most significant of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. It was among the most important Christian centres in Europe, having several great monasteries, most famously at Lindisfarne and Wearmouth-Jarrow. This work presents new insights based on the latest documentary research and archaeological discoveries, including an examination of the work of Bede and the nature of the Northumbrian Church and its relationships with regions elsewhere in the British Isles, Ireland and Western Europe.
