Yale Studies in English, volume 55. "When Old English was a spoken language there was no scholarship, in the strict sense. How andwhen did the study of the language and literature of Old English begin and what obstacles did it meet in its development? The first old English book was published in 1566 and the first professorship of the language in an English university was established in 1795. This study has considerably wider implications than its title might imply. It connects a literary movement ofa peculiar kind with the general political and religious history of Englan d. In a broader sense, it touches upon all men - in what are they interested, and why, at a given time? how do they learn? how do they build upon the past?" - from the dj.
