The origins of Ancrene Wisse: new answers, new questions

Millett, Bella (1992) The origins of Ancrene Wisse: new answers, new questions Medium Aevum, 61, pp. 206-228.

Record type: Article


The article takes as its starting-point Eric Dobson's theory of Victorine authorship (in 'The Origins of Ancrene Wisse', 1976) for the early thirteenth-century Middle English guide for anchoresses, Ancrene Wisse; but argues that both Dobson's own findings and more recent research point more to a Dominican than a Victorine origin.
