Episode 33: Missionaries and Manuscripts

In this episode, we explore the events which led to the first document written in the English language – the laws of Aethelbert of Kent.  We look at the rise of monasteries, the role of St. Patrick in the conversion of the Irish, the missionary work of Pope Gregory and St. Augustine, and the political and religious significance of King Aethelbert’s conversion to Christianity.  We then explore the language of the laws of Aethelbert.

  1. Thought my podcast player had accidentally switched podcasts with that mid episode music. Same music and same mid podcast from Irish History podcast.

    • Ha! I didn’t know that the Irish History Podcast used the same music. I guess great minds think alike. 🙂
