Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled A Companion to Ælfric contains the table of contents, a list of abbreviations, a note on the contributors and the acknowledgements. The book is a newly-commissioned set of chapters from scholars working on a range of topics which relate to Ælfric and his contexts. The book recognizes the achievement of Ælfric as a writer and teacher, but also seeks to consider his relationship to the age in which he lived and to its ecclesiastical and secular politics in a more nuanced way than has often been the case in the past. A number of key themes emerge across the collection, uniting chapters on different topics. The most notable are those of orthodoxy and individuality, Englishness and Christianity, pedagogy and politics, uses and appropriations of Ælfric, and the intersection of style and ideology which is so central to the Ælfrician project.

Keywords: Ælfric; Christianity; politics
