St. Bede the Venerable
Transcript of St. Bede the Venerable
The word "venerable" means accorded a great deal of respect, especially because of age, wisdom, or character. It can also mean (in the Roman Catholic Church) a title given to a deceased person who has attained a certain degree of sanctity but has not been fully beatified or canonized.
Bede was a linguist, a translator. He translated many works of the Church Fathers. This made the works available to many other people.
Saint Bede was made a doctor of the church in 1899 by Leo XIII. He is the only native of Great Britain to ever claim this role. He is the patron saint of English writers, historians, and Jarrow.
Bede is estimated to be born in 673. When he was only 7 years old, Bede was sent by his family to the monastery of Monkwearmouth to learn. This was a common thing for young boys at the time. There, he was educated by Benedict Biscop. In 686, plague broke out. Only 2 surviving monks could do the full liturgy. One was Bede.
When Bede was 19, he was ordained a deacon. The normal age for this was 25. The early ordination may show that Bede's skills were exceptional, or that the age was just commonly disregarded by the people. In 701, Bede wrote his first works. Bede dies on May 26, 735 and was buried at Jarrow.
St. Bede was an English monk in the monastery of Saint Peter. He is known for being an author and a scholar. His most famous work was called
Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum,
The Ecclesiastical History of the English People
