When did England become known as England?
England was first known as England at the time of Alfred the Great 871 AD to 924 AD. The English came to England as raiders in around 449 AD known by the Catholic Church as Adventus Saxonem or the Coming of the English. But it was not until Alfred The Great that the English started to form their own land. It was Alfreds Grandson - KIng Aethelstan who finally deafeated a combined army of Irish, Norse, Scots and Welsh at The battle of Brunanburgh in 937 AD. These initial English were a confederation of 3 Germainc Saxons Angles and Jutes. However, the people called themselves Anglisc (Angle-ish, Anglian) and the national identity was assumed under the heading Anglisc or Englisc, 'English'. The people gave their name to their territory, thus the Englisc gave their name to Englalond (England). Englisc was used from the time of Alfred the Great onwards to describe both in the sense of 'Englishman' and as meaning the 'English' language.

IT IS NOT. Britain is made up of the countries England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.... More information . Many people outside the United Kingdom say "England" when… they really mean Great Britain.. This is potentially offensive to some British people - like saying "Texas" when you really mean The US.

The play 'Antigone' may have become known in England as early as the Roman invasion . The conquering Roman generals may have been familiar with the play as part of their earl…y education in the classic writings of the Latin and earlier Greek languages. Over the centuries, scribes who were versed in the ancient, classical languages of the Greek and Roman civilizations may have begun making copies . By the time of the rise of the universities in England, such copies may have been part of the teaching and reference materials of instructors, librarians, and wealthy patrons. The Norman invasion of October 14, 1066 may have quickened the pace of the copying, learning, owning, reading, and teaching of such masterpieces of the ancient world's literature. And the succeeding centuries may have consolidated the process through the elite network of education by private tutors, university scholars, and public schools.

Ecclesia Anglicana, 750 AD, the title of a history written by Baeda, the Saxon Historian and Saint! This name was also used at the signing of the Magna Carta. 1215.AD. The n…ame used in the middle ages to identify the Church to colleagues abroad during this period was, Sante Eglise d'Angleterre, the Holy Church of England or the Holy Church in England! Both were in regular use then and today! When the Roman's broke away in the 16th C,[ 1570.] the Church in England used the term Anglican to identify themselves whilst the schismatics were given the term Romanist, or papist! This was because the name of the new Roman Church from Trent was the Holy Roman Church!
