A MIND INTENT ON GOD

Douglas Dales

Quotations from Alcuin, that remarkable eighth century Anglo-Saxon leader, teacher, deacon and writer - prayers, extracts from letters to friends and reflections, particularly including the use of the psalms in personal spiritual reflection.

What a delight I found this collection to be. We rarely see quotations from Alcuin, that remarkable eighth century Anglo-Saxon leader, teacher, deacon and writer. The book contains prayers, extracts from letters to friends and reflections, particularly including the use of the psalms in personal spiritual reflection. It can be summed up in words that are quoted as an inscription, 'For where the books are kept': 'These little quarters hold gifts of heavenly wisdom, which you, joyful Reader, may learn to read with a devout heart.
