Bede (Baeda) (c. 673-735) was an English monk and Church historian, often referred to as the "Father of English History". He was born in Northumbria (northeast England), and was placed under the protection of Abbot Benedict Biscop in the monastery of St. Peter at Wearmouth, moving in to the joint-foundation of Jarrow in 682. At Jarrow he fulfilled the life of monastic devotion under Abbot Ceolfrid, who had a great influence upon him, and who encouraged Bede's scholarly endeavors (Bede would later write Ceolfrid's biography in Lives of the Abbots). Though he was ordained both as a deacon and priest, Bede remained in the monastic life, writing historical works (saints' lives), scriptural commentaries, as well as other theological and academic pieces. Toward the end of his life he was working on a translation of the gospel of John into Saxon (old English). However, his fame truly rests upon the History, a work of great devotion and learning, which earned him the title "The Venerable".
