E211 BEDE QUESTIONS
Assigned: "Caedmon's Hymn" from Ecclesiastical History (24-27).

What pattern of life takes shape as Bede tells the story he has heard about Caedmon -- that is, what sort of person was Caedmon, how did his powers come to him, and what seems to be Bede's attitude towards the story he tells?
