SKU CP-POD-9781853112294

Called to be Angels. Introduction to Anglo-Saxon Spirituality. For five centuries Christianity in Britain was shaped by a distinctive and attractive blend of Celtic and Roman spirituality. Learned, cultured and gentle in its exercise of authoroty, this was a golden age which climaxed in the extraordinary flowering of religious devotion and creativity in the tenth century. The legacy of Anglo-Saxon spirituality is visible in many areas of our religious and political life today as its values permeated every area of life. Called to be Angels introduces us to the key figures of our Christian past: Pope Gregory, whose special love for the English people laid the foundation for the Church in England, Bede, Boniface, Cuthbert, Caedmon, Alcuin, Dunstn, Aelfric and others. This warm and inviting book opens the way for a spiritual home-coming and many will recognize in its pages that the Christian qualities they cherish belong to a splendid and ancient native tradition.
