Overview

Ancrene Wisse: Volume I: A corrected edition of the text in Cambridge, Corpus Christi College, 402, with variants from other manuscripts

The thirteenth-century Ancrene Wisse is one of the major works of early Middle English prose, and was repeatedly revised and adapted for different audiences. It has attracted much attention from students of church history and women's studies as a highly influential, important example of pastoral guidance for women religions. This is the first edition to bring together the full manuscript evidence, and to set it in its broader cultural and institutional context.
