Bede's aim in De Templo is stated in Chapter I: 'That the building of the tabernacle and the temple signifies one and the same Church of Christ'. For anyone with an interest in mysticism or merely desiring spiritual nourishment, the reading of De Templo should prove a sublime experience and its own reward. This classic in Latin by an English saint is here made available in English for the first time since it was written nearly 1300 years ago.
