Item description for "Caedmon's Hymn" and Material Culture in the World of Bede (Medieval European Studies) (Medieval European Studies) by Allen J. Frantzen & John Hines...

The essays in this book use the nine-line poem known as "Cdmon's Hymn" as a lens on the world of Bede s Ecclesiastical History. A cowherd who is given a divine gift, Cdmon retells the great narratives of Christian history in the traditional form of Anglo-Saxon verse. An immense amount has been written about this episode, much of it concentrating on the hymn's significance in the history of English literature. Relatively little attention has been paid to what the story of Cdmon and his hymn might tell us about the material as well as the textual culture of Bede's world. The essays in this collection seek to connect "Cdmon's Hymn" to Bede s material world in various ways. Each chapter begins with the hymn and moves from the text to the worlds of scientific thought, settlements and social hierarchy, monastic reform, ordinary things, and others. The connections explored here are a sampling of the material concerns this one text, "Cdmon's Hymn," raises.
