Skulduggery power struggles and politics The Private Lives of the Saints offers an original and fascinating re examination of life in Anglo Saxon Dr Janina Ramirez now uite well acknowledged as a Television historian and broadcaster over the past decade or so crafts a history of the most well known Anglo Saxon and Celtic Christian Saints starting from the fourth century right up until the eleventh century AD in a period commonly known as the Dark Ages due to a lack of written records of this time a confusing era of British history with very limited sources apart from the venerable Bede and without him we would have less sources to go on Starting with Saint Alban and his martyrdom being an early Christian at a time when Rome was still reveling in its Pagan debauchery the history covers the main pivotal religious events and saintly characters over the next 600 years or so or until the Norman Conuest of 1066 starts to suppress the cults that had grown up with these Saints in England at the very least Dr Ramirez analyses ten main characters during this period who became prominent religious figures in these Isles Alban sacrificing himself for his Christian beliefs in place of another condemned person Brigid from Ireland who apparently was a Pagan figure before Celtic Christianity claimed her Patrick captured as a slave and sent to Ireland but became incredibly pious and a national saint in Ireland after a epiphany he is said to have experienced Pope Gregory the Great for sending Augustine and 12 followers to Britain on a mission to convert the Anglo Saxons away from their entrenched Pagan beliefs it worked gradually Saint Columba from the isle of Iona off the Scottish coast another Celtic Christian Cuthbert of Lindisfarne fame split between Celtic and Roman Christianity an interesting character Hilda of Whitby Abbey and the Synod of Whitby fame there were Women involved in religious matters with authority during this time than ever since Saint Wilfred Bede the chronologist not canonised but ended up becoming the venerable Bede whose book The Ecclesiastical History of the English People is a primary source King Alfred the first Royal Saint and finally brief sections on his sons and really ends with Edward the Confessor prior to the Norman conuest The book whilst covering the characters mentioned and what made them saints also paints around them and fleshes out with what was happening socially during this period Pope Gregory the Great sent Augustine and a group of followers to Britain in 597AD and Canterbury is the main place where Roman Christianity was adopted this after near 200 years since the Romans left these isles to defend themselves from barbarians and the Angles Saxons and Jutes settled here with their Pagan beliefs So whilst Celtic Christianity was already a thing in Ireland Wales and parts of Scotland it was fundamentally Augustine with the backing from Rome who converted the majority of the tribes into some kind of unified belief structure away from their barbaric tribal ways It worked slowly at first and the main focus of Dr Ramirezs study concerns what was happening in Northumbria where several of the saints lived and worked Lindisfarne Monastery and Whitby Abbey play no small role in the spreading of Roman Christianity at least until 793 AD when the Vikings started to raid and eventually settle in the North until King Alfred the first Royal Saint introduced the Danelaw and military victories for a brief period of time until King Cnut and eventually the Normans started to rescind and suppress the cults spread around the Anglo Saxon Saints It is a good history the author also briefly covers less well known characters maybe as a way to fill out some chapters because as I said the sources of this period are very very few we have Bede as I mentioned some surviving flowery manuscripts and religious art is a big thing of these times all hand painted and written on vellum it is amazing some of the works still survive today considering the Viking incursions and the Norman suppressioneradication of Anglo Saxon stone churches a lot of archeological conjecturediscoveries and so on Nationality also is covered we are a nation of immigrants which ever country you say your proud to be from Modern day nationalism is such a fake concept that many politicians fail to recognise or wish to understand I digress Great history from a great historian 4 stars Between Heaven and Mirth in Anglo Saxon Dr Janina Ramirez now uite well acknowledged as a Television historian and broadcaster over
