Abstract To date, Bede‘s letter to Albinus—which he wrote to accompany copies of his Historia ecclesiastica and De templo that he was sending to his friend and mentor in Canterbury—has been known only from Jean Mabillon‘s 1675 edition of a now lost manuscript. This article presents a new edition and translation of the letter, based on two recently discovered medieval manuscripts, together with a fresh examination of its transmission and authenticity.
