(the Great, king of the Anglo-Saxons, 871-899) : [102:] Alfred 8 promised to give one half of his mental and bodily service to God. Since he was not able to calculate the length of the night because of darkness and the day because of the very frequent density of showers and clouds, Alfred1 began to ponder in what way he might keep his vow. [105:] When he had devised candles and a lantern, Alfred 8 desired to offer the half part of his service as he had vowed.
