English: Cædmon is the earliest English (Northumbrian) poet whose name is known. An Anglo-Saxon who cared for the animals and was attached to the double monastery of Streonæshalch (Whitby Abbey) during the abbacy (657–680) of St. Hilda (614–680), he was originally ignorant of "the art of song" but learned to compose one night in the course of a dream, according to the 8th-century monk Bede. He later became a zealous monk and an accomplished and inspirational Christian poet.
Polski: Cædmon ( VII wiek) - pierwszy znany z imienia poeta staroangielski żyjący w Northumbrii, święty Kościoła katolickiego.
