Bede was born in 673, in Northumberland, became a monk and died at Jarrow in 735. He was one of the most important intellects and most prolific writers of his time, probably best known for his History of the English Church and People. His Lives of the Abbots was probably written sometime after 716, and is both a short account of their lives and a local history of the monasteries by one of their inhabitants.
With a few verbal alterations this edition is a literal translation of the original, which was printed and published by George Sanders, of Sunderland, in 1818.
