Not illustrated. 1842 edition. Excerpt: ...emissarium regis pergebat ad idola; quod aspiciens vulgus sestimabat eum insanire. Nec distulit ille, mox ut propiabat ad fanum, profanare illud, injecta in eo lancea quam tenebat; multumque gavisus de agnitione veri Dei cultus, jussit sociis destruere ac succendere fanum cum omnibus septis suis. Ostenditur autem locus ille quondam idolorum non longe ab Eburaco ad orientem, ultra amnen Doruuentionem, et vocatur hodie Godmunddingaham, ubi pontifex ipse, inspirante Deo vero, polluit ac destruxit eas quas ipse sacraverat aras. Bede's works were first published in a collective form at Paris in 1544 and 1545, and reprinted in 1554, in six volumes folio. These editions are now of extreme rarity; the first three volumes of the former, containing the theological writings, are in the British Museum. Another collective edition was printed at Basil in 1563, in eight volumes, folio, which is much more common. A more complete edition was published at Cologne in 1612, and reprinted in 1688, in eight volumes folio. The first Cologne edition is that of most frequent occurrence. In this edition, the first volume contains the treatises on grammar and the smaller scientific tracts attributed to Bede, many of which are evidently supposititious; in the second volume are given the treatises De Rerum Natura De Temporum Ratione, De Temporibus, and some other tracts on similar subjects; in the third, the Ecclesiastical History, the Lives of Saints (most of them erroneously attributed to Bede), the Martyrology, and the books De Locis Sanctis, De Interpretatione Nominum Hebraicorum, &c.; in the fourth, the Commentaries on the Old Testament; in the fifth and sixth, the Commentaries on the New Testament; in the seventh, the Homilies and the writings designed for more
