A period of fifty years' peace came to an end in the second half of the sixth century, when the Anglo-Saxon settlers were again on the move; by 650 they had conquered nearly all of what is now England, and the boundaries of England, Scotland, and Wales were taking shape.
In discussing the end of the Dark Ages the speakers consider what this period has to contribute to a general understanding of the history of these islands. How much Roman civilisation survived the Dark Ages? Is the Anglo-Saxon element really as important to us as the nineteenth-century historians believe? In fact, how Welsh are the English?
A series of four Lenten talks by Professor V. A. Demant of Christ Church, Oxford
Sake God loveth all that he hath made; and he that loveth generally all his even-Christians for God, lie loveth all that is
In this last talk Canon Demant outlines what it means to love fellow creatures for God's sake. Illustrating his points from some great teachers of the spiritual life, he shows how growth in holiness weeds out the more disguised forms of egoism and can change a creaking effort to be brotherly into a spontaneous and attractive neighbourliness.
