'These essays ... extensively discuss and analyze Bede's concerns about the time to come in a variety of contexts. Although Bede himself presents history and eschatology clearly, these related essays show how complex and involved those subjects were and how adroitly Bede treated them as he augmented the fathers' analyses.'
