Description/Abstract

Ancrene Wisse, a guide for female recluses written in the West Midlands in the early thirteenth century, and the closely related religious works of the 'Katherine Group', written in a rich and varied English prose, provide a vivid insight into the religious life of the time. This edition is designed to introduce them to a wider audience; it provides a representative selection (the last two parts of Ancrene Wisse, and three complete works from the Katherine Group, Hali Meithhad, Sawles Warde, and Seinte Margarete) in new and readable critical texts, with a general introduction, notes, a select glossary, and interleaved translations.
