AbstractBuilding on sessions which have run at the IMC consecutively since 2011, this year two panels are proposed on the subject Canterbury in the Age of Bede (broadly defined to cover the period c. 600-750). Canterbury was established as the principal seat of the Anglo-Saxon Church following Augustine's arrival in Kent at the turn of the 7th century and the centre was crucial to the development of the Anglo-Saxon Church throughout this period. This panel focusses on Canterbury in the 8th century. The papers cover: a letter received by Archbishop Berhtwald from Wealdhere, bishop of London (Lawton); the role that Canterbury played in the formation of Bede's Historia ecclesiastica (Shaw); Canterbury's involvement in Church reform through the early Anglo-Saxon period (Cubitt).
