The conversion of the Saxons in England from their original Germanic religion to Christianity occurred in the early to late 7th century under the influence of the already converted Jutes of Kent.
In the s, Birinus became the "apostle to the West Saxons" and converted Wessex , whose first Christian king was Cynegils.
The West Saxons begin to emerge from obscurity only with their conversion to Christianity and keeping written records.
The Gewisse , a West Saxon people, were especially resistant to Christianity; Birinus exercised more efforts against them and ultimately succeeded in conversion.
The South Saxons were first evangelised extensively under Anglian influence; Aethelwalh of Sussex was converted by Wulfhere , King of Mercia and allowed Wilfrid , Bishop of York , to evangelise his people beginning in The chief South Saxon bishopric was that of Selsey.
The East Saxons were more pagan than the southern or western Saxons; their territory had a superabundance of pagan sites. Its first bishop, Mellitus , was expelled by Saeberht's heirs.
The conversion of the East Saxons was completed under Cedd in the s and s. The continental Saxons were evangelised largely by English missionaries in the late 7th and early 8th centuries.
Around , two early English missionaries, Hewald the White and Hewald the Black , were martyred by the vicani , that is, villagers.
Saint Lebuin , an Englishman who between and preached to the Saxons, mainly in the eastern Netherlands, built a church and made many friends among the nobility.
Some of them rallied to save him from an angry mob at the annual council at Marklo near river Weser, Bremen.
Social tensions arose between the Christianity-sympathetic noblemen and the pagan lower castes, who were staunchly faithful to their traditional religion.
Under Charlemagne, the Saxon Wars had as their chief object the conversion and integration of the Saxons into the Frankish empire. Though much of the highest caste converted readily, forced baptisms and forced tithing made enemies of the lower orders.
Even some contemporaries found the methods employed to win over the Saxons wanting, as this excerpt from a letter of Alcuin of York to his friend Meginfrid, written in , shows:.
If the light yoke and sweet burden of Christ were to be preached to the most obstinate people of the Saxons with as much determination as the payment of tithes has been exacted, or as the force of the legal decree has been applied for fault of the most trifling sort imaginable, perhaps they would not be averse to their baptismal vows.
Charlemagne's successor, Louis the Pious , reportedly treated the Saxons more as Alcuin would have wished, and as a consequence they were faithful subjects.
He celebrated the Frankish monarch as on par with the Roman emperors and as the bringer of Christian salvation to people.
References are made to periodic outbreaks of pagan worship, especially of Freya, among the Saxon peasantry as late as the 12th century.
In the 9th century, the Saxon nobility became vigorous supporters of monasticism and formed a bulwark of Christianity against the existing Slavic paganism to the east and the Nordic paganism of the Vikings to the north.
Much Christian literature was produced in the vernacular Old Saxon , the notable ones being a result of the literary output and wide influence of Saxon monasteries such as Fulda , Corvey and Verden ; and the theological controversy between the Augustinian , Gottschalk and Rabanus Maurus.
From an early date, Charlemagne and Louis the Pious supported Christian vernacular works in order to evangelise the Saxons more efficiently.
The Heliand , a verse epic of the life of Christ in a Germanic setting, and Genesis , another epic retelling of the events of the first book of the Bible , were commissioned in the early 9th century by Louis to disseminate scriptural knowledge to the masses.
A council of Tours in and then a synod of Mainz in both declared that homilies ought to be preached in the vernacular. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The band changed their name to Saxon shortly afterwards. They began by supporting established bands such as Motörhead. In , the band signed to French record label Carrere , run by Freddy Cannon in the UK, and released their eponymous debut album.
Wheels of Steel , released in , charted at 5 in the UK. It resulted in two hit songs: the title track and the crowd favourite " Strangers in the Night ".
As a result, Saxon began a series of long UK tours. On 16 August, they earned a positive reception at the first Monsters of Rock festival, commemorated by the following year's " And the Bands Played On ".
Their set was recorded, but not officially released until Strong Arm of the Law was released later in the year, charting at 11 in the UK.
Considered by many to be their best album [ by whom? Two singles were issued: the title track and "Dallas 1PM", the latter about the assassination of U.
President John F. Sold-out tours of Europe and the UK followed as the album charted in several European countries. The band was also popular in Japan, where the single "Motorcycle Man" stayed in the charts for almost six months.
He spent three days on the road with us. I was too busy laughing my head off. But some of the other guys didn't see the funny side. In , the band released their fourth album Denim and Leather , dedicated to their fan base.
Still popular today, its title track "Denim and Leather" is regarded as a metal anthem. Denim and Leather followed its predecessor's success and went Gold in several European countries, including the UK.
Just as the band was to embark on a long tour to follow the success of Denim and Leather , drummer Pete Gill left, after injuring his hand.
The band quickly replaced him with Nigel Glockler , formerly of Toyah , who had to learn the entire set within a day and a half.
Glockler is still with the band today. It was planned as a double album, but the record company decided to release it as a single live album, despite protests from the band.
The Eagle Has Landed is still highly regarded [ citation needed ]. Saxon also played the Monsters of Rock festival again in , becoming the first band to appear there twice.
The "Power and Glory Tour" was an arena tour that began in Europe, and was a huge success. The US leg of the tour with support act Accept proved to be successful and Saxon found themselves becoming a major act in the US as the album, in its first week of release, sold more than 15, copies in Los Angeles alone.
The emerging glam metal scene in America would, however, prevent the band's conquest of the American market, as the genre was increasing in mainstream popularity.
The cover art of the album was produced by Hollywood film director Ridley Scott. Though still heavy, critics felt the album had a more commercial sound, and fans began to wonder what direction the band was taking.
Despite its commercial sound, the title track became a fan favourite. The album sold over 2 million copies and the world tour "The World Crusade" was a success both in Europe and America.
By this time the band was considered [ by whom? With the release of Innocence Is No Excuse in , the band continued to take a more commercial direction and this divided fans as the band's once raw, heavy sound had been watered down for the large US market.
The album has, however, gained appreciation from fans and critics as time has passed.
