Origins & Beginnings, part 1Read Now
Dr Monk has been busy scribing away for Rochester Cathedral. He has re-written a piece, Origins and Beginnings, which in its original guise appeared on this website back in 2016, and to accompany this he has also produced a new edition, a line-by-line rendering, and a full translation of Æthelberht's Code, the oldest set of laws in England, dating to the year 600.
If you would like to avail yourself of these, admittedly half decent, pieces of scholarship, just follow the links below.
Oh, and there's a video of him reading some of the clauses from the law-code. It was produced in 2014. I remember it well, because they didn't ask me to read it!
May you all be blessed,
The Medieval Monk
