Bede's Temple: a picture and its Interpretation examines Bede's use of the temple to bare his rules of background, the universe, Christ, the Church,
and the person Christian. throughout his large physique of writings Bede offered a picture of solidarity, no matter if that be the team spirit of Jew and gentile within the common Church, or the solidarity of human and divine within the incarnate Christ, and the temple-image supplied a method of knowing and celebrating that unity.
