Etymologically, pastoral care has its roots in the teachings and organisation of the Christian church. From the Latin root ‘pascere’ (to feed) and articulated by the powerful metaphor of the Good Shepherd, pastoral care describes the spiritually and morally sustaining concern of the leader for their flock. The ‘pastoral paradigm’ can, in fact, have a significant integrative function in relation to much of the life of the human community. The five pastoral care functions. It is necessary, therefore, to clarify this area of investigation by way of a definition. Pastoral care consists of helping acts, done by representative persons, directed towards the healing, sustaining, guiding, reconciling and nurturing of persons whose troubles and concerns arise in the context of daily interactions and ultimate means and concerns.

Gregory's Pastoral Care ( Regula pastoralis or De cura pastorali ) was composed in the 590s, shortly after he became pope, as a handbook for his bishops and other leaders detailing how they should teach and guide their people. It became an enormously influential text, widely disseminated across Christendom. Of the six manuscripts of the vernacular Pastoral Care that survive, two date from Alfred's own time. Gameson, Richard, "English book collection in the late eleventh and early twelfth century: Symeon's Durham and its context", in David Rollason (e., Symeon of Durham: Historian of Durham and the North, Studies in North-Eastern History 1 (Stamford: Shaun Tyas, 1998) pp. 230-253.

After Alfred translated Pastoral Care, he added a long prose Preface addressed to the bishops in his territory, as well as a metrical preface in the voice of the book itself. In the prose Preface, Alfred argues that England is in a state of moral and cultural decline, and outlines a program for educational reform. A series of translations from Latin to English of "the books most needful for all men to know" are to be the cornerstone of this program. Then Alfred, like Gregory, had the manuscript copied and sent out to his bishops.
