This book moves beyond the somewhat parochial concerns of Anglo-Saxon history to bring Aldhelm into the mainstream of Late Antique studies, a figure as fully at home with the cultural trappings of Rome as he is with Christian patristic literature.
G.T. Dempsey is both a fiction and non-fiction author. A historian of Late Antiquity, he specializes in seventh-century Western intellectual history and has published several works on Aldhelm. He is also the author of “From the Embassy”.
