The Venerable Bede (673—735), who spent most of his life as a monk in Jarrow, in Northumbria was an author writing in medieval Latin. He is most famous for his Ecclesiastical History of the English People, which used both traditional and manuscript sources, but he also wrote many other works, mostly biblical commentaries.
