Almighty God, who in a rude and barbarous age didst raise up thy deacon Alcuin to rekindle the light of learning: Illumine our minds, we pray thee, that amid the uncertainties and confusions of our own time we may show forth thine eternal truth, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Today the church celebrates Saint Alcuin of York. He was a poet and scholar. At the invitation of Charlemagne he became the leading scholar in his court and was described as “The most learned man anywhere to be found” He died in France in 804 pic.twitter.com/XFDLpqbOzN
