Bede.jpg|100px|left]] The '''[[ Bede|Venerable Bede]]''' (c. 672 - [[ May 25]] , 735) was a [[ monk]] at the Northumbrian [[ monastery]] of St. Peter at Wearmouth (today part of Sunderland), and of its daughter monastery, St. Paul's, in modern Jarrow. He is well known as an author and scholar, whose best-known work is ''[[ Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum]] '' (''The Ecclesiastical History of the English People''), which gained him the title ''The Father of English History''. [[ Saint]] Bede wrote on many other topics, from music and musical metrics to [[ scripture]] commentaries. His [[feast day]] is observed on May 25 or [[ May 27]].
Better a stupid and unlettered brother who, working the good things he knows, merits life in Heaven than one who though being distinguished for his learning in the Scriptures, or even holding the place of a doctor, lacks the bread of love."'' :—St. Bede the Venerable
