Advanced Old English: Ælfric's Letter to Sigeweard

Advanced LanguagesGermanic Studies
Precepted by Larry Swain.
For this month, we turn again to Aelfric of Eynsham, the most prolific writer in Old English. In this letter, he addresses a nobleman and tries to teach him what Aelfric considers to be the important things of the Christian faith. It is a fascinating text to read and has a little something for everyone interested in the language, literature, and culture of Early Medieval England.
