Alfred the Great

And so, while Alfred was still intent on his lessons with Asser, with Athelstan and with Werwulf, he proposed to this bishop, Werferth, the work of translating into Old English the Dialogues of St. Gregory the Great.

Alfred the Great

From the author of The Gateway to the Middle Ages, “a fascinating portrait of an enlightened monarch against a background of darkness and ignorance” (Kirkus Reviews). Filled with drama and action, here is the story of the ninth-century life and times of Alfred—warrior, conqueror, lawmaker, scholar, and the only king whom England has ever called “The Great.” Based on up-to-date information on ninth-century history, geography, philosophy, literature, and social life, it vividly presents exciting views of Alfred in every stage of his long career and leaves the reader with a sharply etched picture of the world of the Middle Ages
