Born at Jarrow in Northumberland, England, Bede was entrusted as a young lad to the care of St. Benedict Biscop, Abbot of Wearmouth. Having himself become a monk, Bede, “the most observant and the happiest of all monks”, was also one of the most learned churchmen of his time. He wrote very full commentaries on Holy Scripture, which are often used in the Breviary. Leo XIII proclaimed him one of the Doctors of the Universal Church. He died in Jarrow on May 25, 735.
From St. Andrews Daily Missal 1962 ed.

Due to his work on producing English translations, and his work to propagate the Roman form of the liturgy, we dedicate this website to him.

    You may not know of my translations of Bede’s Hymns and Ambrose’s. Would you
    like me to send them as a gift, and if so what is your address?
