Commentary, Cædmon’s Hymn

Friend and contributor Nasa is back, and truthfully, back earlier than I expected. (This is a good thing!)

Though Luke 2 is a fitting and traditional reading for Christmas Day, I like to try to put a twist on things where I can. Nasa submitted these two texts as items of interest to Old English scholars. While they certainly are, they’re also items of religious interest to Christians like me. Cura Pastoralis touched on the theme that we ought to be known by our fruit, a timeless theme. This piece touches on the majesty of God, and although Cædmon writes in terms more familiar to Anglo-Saxons of the seventh century, the thrust of his piece still rings true to my ears today.
