 Anon.AlfredAcros2  4 (Behold, you shape yourself always to acquire the shining talents.)
 Alfred.BoethConPhil  1 (... various and manifold mundane cares that often occupied him in mind and body. These cares, which befell him during his days in the kingdom to which he succeeded, are hard to compute.)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  81 (For this is his peculiar and most usual practice by day and night , amongst all the other distractions of mind and body either to read aloud books to himself or to listen to others reading aloud.)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  99 (pious contemplative)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  106.15-17 (The king [i.e., Alfred 8] was a very wise investigator in following up judicial matters, as in all other things)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  42 (In wisdom and in all his good habits he outstripped all his brothers )
 Asser.VitAlfredi  22 (From the cradle before all else and despite all the commitments of the present life, a desire for wisdom together with the nobility of his line constituted the nature of his noble mind.)
language competence (2)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  87 (Alfred 8 first began in the same year [scil. 887] to read [Latin] and translate all on a single day through divine inspiration.)

 Asser.VitAlfredi  56 (moved by mercy, which he customarily displayed)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  76 (With immense and incomparable goodwill and pleasantness )
 Asser.VitAlfredi  74.22-4 ([H]e was an assiduous visitor to holy places even from his childhood for the purpose of praying and giving alms.)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  81 (how lavish in generosity he is)
 Ęthelweard.Chron  iv.3 (p. 51) (an unshakeable pillar of the West Saxons, a man filled with justice, fierce in combat, learned in speech, indeed steeped in divine letters above all else.)

 Symeonof Durham.HistoriadeSanctoCuthberto  19a (distinguished by as many virtues as possible)

 Asser.VitAlfredi  76 (He would complain day and night with anxious distress to the Lord and to those who were known to him intimately)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  76 (He groaned with continuous sighing that Omnipotent God had created him devoid of divine wisdom and [a knowledge of] the liberal arts.)

stated health (6)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  25 (When he was older and repeatedly seized day and night by ailments, indeed, ones not known to the doctors of this island ...)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  74.1-17 (When he had celebrated his nuptials, after continuous feasting by day and night, he was gripped by a sudden and severe illness ... that, worst of all, [it was] so serious that it had been prolonged without remission throughout his years from the twentieth to his fortieth year of his life, and even beyond.... Some believed it was piles, a kind of very troublesome ailment he indeed had from his youth.)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  74.55-70 (... after some period of time ... he developed piles through the gift of God. Suffering this long and severely over many years, he despaired even of life, until it was removed completely from him after he had prayed. But, sad to say, after it disappeared, another worse thing gripped him at his marriage..., which wearied him without surcease day and night from the twentieth year of his life until the forty-fifth; but if at any time through God's mercy that illness abated for a single day or night or even for the space of a single hour, yet the fear and dread of that horrible illness never ever left him, but, as it were, rendered him nearly useless, as it seemed to him, for divine and human affairs.)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  76 (the daily infirmities of his body)
 Asser.VitAlfredi  91.1-9 (The king was pierced through by the nails of many tribulations ... for he was continually wearied from his twentieth year to his forty-fifth (which is now) by a most serious attack from an unknown illness, so that he does not have peace of mind for a single hour in which he might not experience that ailment or not despair under an almost settled depression from fear of it.)

Education (21)
 ... to translate into English, sometimes word by word, sometimes sense for sense, just as he [Alfred 8] learned from Latin] from Plegmund 1 and from Asser 1 and from Grimbald 1 and from John 21.: Alfred.GregCurPast  PraefPr.7.18-22

 He remained illiterate until his twelfth year or even older through the shameful lack of concern of his parents and those who brought him up (Anonymi 35). But as an intelligent listener to English poems by day and night, listening with great frequency to their being recounted by others, he retained them in his receptive memory. In the art of hunting, he labours unceasingly--and not in vain--as an energetic hunter, for he was not matched by anyone for skill and success in that art, just as in all other gifts of God.... : Asser.VitAlfredi  22
 [He learnt] the daily cycle, i.e. the celebrations of the hours, and then certain psalms et many prayers.: Asser.VitAlfredi  24
 He was not able to satisfy his desire for what he most wanted, namely, [a knowledge of] the liberal arts.: Asser.VitAlfredi  24
 He claimed that what had been the greatest amongst all his burdens ... and hardships ... was that when he was of an age and had the opportunity and capacity to learn, he did not have teachers.: Asser.VitAlfredi  25
 When he was older, ... he was so troubled that he could not read, although he had teachers (Anonymi 37) and scribes (Anonymi 38) to some extent.: Asser.VitAlfredi  25
 He would complain and groan with a frequent sigh that Almighty God had created him without a knowledge of divine wisdom and the liberal arts.: Asser.VitAlfredi  76.41-3
 He directed the eyes of his mind far away, seeking without what he did not have within, namely in his own kingdom.: Asser.VitAlfredi  76.68-70
 Alfred 8 did not cease from reading aloud books in English and especially memorizing English poetry: Asser.VitAlfredi  76.9-10
 The teaching and wisdom of these men increased the king's desire steadily and fulfilled it.: Asser.VitAlfredi  77

 Alfred 8 began the rudiments of sacred scripture on St Martin's Day.: Asser.VitAlfredi  89
 Alfred 8 was so well educated by Grimbald 1 and John 21 that in s short while he had a knowledge of all books and translated the whole New and Old Testament into the high style of the English people. : Anon.LiberEliensis  I.39

Accusation (1)
 Various.dispute over Fonthill S1445: Sire, I will inform you what happened about the land at Fonthill, the 5 hides which Ęthelhelm 10 is claiming. When Helmstan 2 committed the crime of stealing Ęthelred 22's belt, Higa at once began to bring charge against him, along with other claimants, and wished to win the land from him by litigation. Then he came to me and begged me to intercede for him, because I had stood sponsor to him at his confirmation before he committed that crime. Then I spoke on his behalf and interceded for him with King Alfred 8. Then - may God repay his soul - he allowed him to be entitled to prove his right against Ęthelhelm 10 as regards the land, because of my advocacy and true account. Then he ordered that they should be brought agreement, and I [Anonymous 1036] was one of the men appointed to do it, and Wihtbrord 4 and Ęlfric 8, who was then keeper of the wardrobe [hręlšen], and Beorhthelm 11 and Wulfhun 3 the Black of Somerton, and Stricca 1 and Ubba 4 and more men than I can now name.

Adoption, spiritual (2)
 Alfred 8.journey to Rome: Alfred 8 was received by Leo 2. He decorated him as a spiritual son, with the dignity of the belt and the vestments of the consulate, as was customary with Roman consuls.: Leo IV.Ep.HG31    (853)
 Leo 2.adoption of Alfred 8 as son: [Leo 2] called [Alfred 8] his spiritual son.: Ęthelweard.Chron  iii.4 (p. 32) (853)
Advice/counsel (5)
 Alfred 8.death: In 899 King Alfred 8 died when he had reigned 28 years, and his son Edward 2 succeeded him, having been diligently admonished by his father that he should especially honour St Cuthbert 1.: NorthernAnnals.SecondSet  82 (899)
 Alfred 8.grant to St Cuthbert's 1: After Alfred 8 understood the end of his life to be drawing near, long having ruled and worn out by ripe old age, he summoned his son Edward 2 and through him conveyed to St Cuthbert's 1 two armlets and a golden thurible, and admonished him diligently to love God and St Cuthbert 1 and to trust in them just as he himself had always trusted.: Symeonof Durham.HistoriadeSanctoCuthberto  19a
 Alfred 8.law making: ... Afterwards when it came about that many peoples had received the faith of Christ, many synods were assembled throughout all the earth, and likewise throughout the English people, after they had received the faith of Christ, of holy bishops and also of other distinguished wise men; they then established, for that mercy which Christ taught, that secular lords might with their permission receive without sin compensation in money for almost every misdeed at the first offence, which compensation they then fixed; only for treachery to a lord they dared not declare any mercy, because Almighty God adjudged none for those who scorned him, nor did Christ, the Son of God, adjudge any for him who gave him over to death; and He charged [everyone] to love his lord as himself. They then in many synods fixed the compensations for many human misdeeds, and they wrote them in synod-books, here one law, there another. Then I, King Alfred 8, collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and ordered them to be differently observed. For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us. But those which I found, which seemed to me most just, either in the time of my kinsman, King Ine 1, or of Offa 7, king of the Mercians, or of Ęthelberht 3, who first among the English received baptism, I collected herein, and omitted the others. Then I, Alfred 8, king of the West Saxons, showed these to all my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and they then said that they were all pleased to observe them.: Alfred.Laws   
 Alfred 8.vision of St Cuthbert 1: Once, while hiding from the Danes in the Glastonbury marsh, Alfred 8 sent out his household, except for his wife [Ealhswith 1] and one servant [Anonymous 10134], fishing. When a stranger appeared, Alfred 8 shared with him the last loaf of bread and some wine. When the stranger disappeared, the loaf was found whole and intact. The household returned with three boats completely filled with fish, claiming that they had never caught so much before. At night the stranger reappeared before Alfred 8 within a shining beam of light as St Cuthbert 1 and called him the chosen King of all Britain, bestowing many blessings upon him. Since then Alfred 8 considered St Cuthbert 1 his patron. Next morning Alfred 8 gathered five hundred of his best and dearest friends and told them about the vision, urging them to commit themselves to virtuous life. He also advised his son Edward 2, who was there, to be faithful to God and St Cuthbert 1 and not to be afraid of his enemies. And then they rushed upon the Danes and overwhelmed them and took over the rule of Britain.: Symeonof Durham.HistoriadeSanctoCuthberto  15-18

Afterwards when it came about that many peoples had received the faith of Christ, many synods were assembled throughout all the earth, and likewise throughout the English people, after they had received the faith of Christ, of holy bishops and also of other distinguished wise men; they then established, for that mercy which Christ taught, that secular lords might with their permission receive without sin compensation in money for almost every misdeed at the first offence, which compensation they then fixed; only for treachery to a lord they dared not declare any mercy, because Almighty God adjudged none for those who scorned him, nor did Christ, the Son of God, adjudge any for him who gave him over to death; and He charged [everyone] to love his lord as himself. They then in many synods fixed the compensations for many human misdeeds, and they wrote them in synod-books, here one law, there another. Then I, King Alfred 8, collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and ordered them to be differently observed. For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us. But those which I found, which seemed to me most just, either in the time of my kinsman, King Ine 1, or of Offa 7, king of the Mercians, or of Ęthelberht 3, who first among the English received baptism, I collected herein, and omitted the others.

Afterwards when it came about that many peoples had received the faith of Christ, many synods were assembled throughout all the earth, and likewise throughout the English people, after they had received the faith of Christ, of holy bishops and also of other distinguished wise men; they then established, for that mercy which Christ taught, that secular lords might with their permission receive without sin compensation in money for almost every misdeed at the first offence, which compensation they then fixed; only for treachery to a lord they dared not declare any mercy, because Almighty God adjudged none for those who scorned him, nor did Christ, the Son of God, adjudge any for him who gave him over to death; and He charged [everyone] to love his lord as himself. They then in many synods fixed the compensations for many human misdeeds, and they wrote them in synod-books, here one law, there another. Then I, King Alfred 8, collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and ordered them to be differently observed. For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us. But those which I found, which seemed to me most just, either in the time of my kinsman, King Ine 1, or of Offa 7, king of the Mercians, or of Ęthelberht 3, who first among the English received baptism, I collected herein, and omitted the others.

 Alfred 8.law making: ... Afterwards when it came about that many peoples had received the faith of Christ, many synods were assembled throughout all the earth, and likewise throughout the English people, after they had received the faith of Christ, of holy bishops and also of other distinguished wise men; they then established, for that mercy which Christ taught, that secular lords might with their permission receive without sin compensation in money for almost every misdeed at the first offence, which compensation they then fixed; only for treachery to a lord they dared not declare any mercy, because Almighty God adjudged none for those who scorned him, nor did Christ, the Son of God, adjudge any for him who gave him over to death; and He charged [everyone] to love his lord as himself. They then in many synods fixed the compensations for many human misdeeds, and they wrote them in synod-books, here one law, there another. Then I, King Alfred 8, collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and ordered them to be differently observed. For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us. But those which I found, which seemed to me most just, either in the time of my kinsman, King Ine 1, or of Offa 7, king of the Mercians, or of Ęthelberht 3, who first among the English received baptism, I collected herein, and omitted the others. Then I, Alfred 8, king of the West Saxons, showed these to all my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and they then said that they were all pleased to observe them.: Alfred.Laws

Afterwards when it came about that many peoples had received the faith of Christ, many synods were assembled throughout all the earth, and likewise throughout the English people, after they had received the faith of Christ, of holy bishops and also of other distinguished wise men; they then established, for that mercy which Christ taught, that secular lords might with their permission receive without sin compensation in money for almost every misdeed at the first offence, which compensation they then fixed; only for treachery to a lord they dared not declare any mercy, because Almighty God adjudged none for those who scorned him, nor did Christ, the Son of God, adjudge any for him who gave him over to death; and He charged [everyone] to love his lord as himself. They then in many synods fixed the compensations for many human misdeeds, and they wrote them in synod-books, here one law, there another. Then I, King Alfred 8, collected these together and ordered to be written many of them which our forefathers observed, those which I liked; and many of those which I did not like I rejected with the advice of my councillors [Anonymi 2383], and ordered them to be differently observed. For I dared not presume to set in writing at all many of my own, because it was unknown to me what would please those who should come after us.
