    Summary Asser's Life of King Alfred, written in , is a revealing account of one of the greatest of medieval kings. Composed by a monk of St David's in Wales who became Bishop of Sherborne in Alfred's service and worked with him in his efforts to revive religion and learning in his kingdom, this life is among the earliest surviving royal biographies. Alfred Thayer Mahan, (born Septem , West Point, New York, U.S.—died December 1, , Quogue, New York), American naval officer and historian who was a highly influential exponent of sea power in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.. Mahan was the son of a professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy.

    Alfred was the first Anglo-Saxon leader to provide effective opposition to the Vikings and from him, we can see the early formation of England. “I desired to live worthily as long as I lived, and to leave after my life, to the men who should come after me, the memory of me in good works.” – King Alfred. Early life. Asser's "Life" differs also in its use of Latin, not the vernacular that most sources from Alfred's reign are written in. In the year of our Lord's incarnation the eight hundred and seventy-eighth, andthe thirtieth from King Alfred's birth, the oft-mentioned army left Exeter andcame to Chippenham, a royal vill located in the north of Wiltshire.

    Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done” (Revelation ESV). The verse you asked about, whether the books are actual books or metaphors for records God is keeping, appear to illustrate the truth that every person is judged by what. A day in the Life of Alfred tells a story about alienation in the big city. A dark tale of a lonely man’s struggle to survive and maintain control in his life. Powerful and dramatic images draw.
