Overview

The Wooing Group is a collection of texts in English written by an unknown author in the late twelfth to early thirteenth centuries, almost certainly aimed at a group of women living as anchoresses and recluses who were literate in English and interested in guidance on both spiritual and worldly issues. This volume brings together our most current interpretations of these texts from scholars currently working in the fields of medieval spirituality, gender, and the anchorite tradition, providing new literary, theological, linguistic, and cultural context for the works and situating them within the larger continuum of medieval culture.
