During the Anglo-Saxon period, English authors wrote both in the Old English language and in the Latin language. The body of Latin works produced by English authors during this period is referred to as "Anglo-Latin Writings" in the standard literary histories. The Anglo-Latin writings are an important part of Anglo-Saxon literature. Some of the greatest Anglo-Saxon authors wrote only in Latin, or only their Latin works have survived.
