This collection of 14 essays explores the origins, context and content of the anchoritic and mystical texts produced in England during the Middle Ages and examines the ways in which these texts may be studied and taught today. Covering topics including the devotional life of the laity, Richard Rolle, and contexts for teaching Julian of Norwich, the contributions incorporate historical, literary and theological perspectives and offer critical approaches and background material which will inform both research and teaching. No jacket.
