The Venerable Bede's In Ezram et Neemiam is the first and only complete commentary written on the biblical books of Ezra and Nehemiah in the patristic or later medieval era. This is the first English translation of Bede's text, and in it he emerges as a daring innovator, an author who used the stories of Ezra and Nehemiah to explore the pastoral and secular crises of his own day. Translator Scott DeGregorio makes Bede's work both accessible to the layperson and illuminating for the specialist. This edition includes annotations dealing with textual, historical, and religious issues; a comprehensive introduction that places the text in the backdrop of Bede's eighth-century Northumbrian community; two appendices; and a bibliography.This volume contains a translation of the Latin text; annotations dealing with textual, historical, social, and religious issues; an introduction; two appendices; and a bibliography.
