The Wonderful Story of Britain: The First Schools. Bede teaching children in the monastery at Jarrow. At age 7, Bede was given to the monks of Wearmouth Abbey as an oblate. He never left. "From that time, I have spent the whole of my life within that monastery, devoting all my pains to the study of the Scriptures, and amid the observance of monastic discipline and the daily charge of singing in the church, it has ever been my delight to learn or teach or write.

Indeed: Bede completed some 40 works in his busy life, none more important than History of the English Church and Its People. Bede ranks not only as the first English historian, but also one of the best.

Original artwork from Treasure no. 24 (29 June 1963).
