Description/Abstract

This chapter offers an overview of the ten Middle English religious prose works belonging to the 'Ancrene Wisse' Group (named from its longest and most influential work, a guide for anchoresses), and also outlines a 'unified theory' of their origin which attempts to explain their combination of older native and contemporary Continental influences, placing them in a West Midlands diocesan context and seeing them as the product of the European movement of pastoral reform that culminated in the Fourth Lateran Council.
