St. Bede Commentary on Proverbs



It’s my understanding St. Bede wrote a commentary book on the Book of Proverbs.

Does anyone know where I can buy the English translation of this book?




I am fairly sure there are no English translations yet. But there’s translated portions found in the Ancient Christian Commentary on Sacred Scripture. That is an excellent resource for Proverbs because it has lots of translated portions from the commentaries from Chrysostom, Didymus the Blind, Gregory the Great and Bede.


I could be wrong but from what I can tell, St Bede’s commentary on the Proverbs of Solomon only includes commentary on the following verses:
Proverbs 7:10-12.
Proverbs 8:24.
Proverbs 26:8.
Proverbs 30:18-19,21-23,30-31.
Proverbs 31:4-5.

check out Cistercian Publications, Kalamazoo, Michigan, which is referenced in the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture.
