During the later Middle Ages, there was in England a rich outflowing of spiritual writings in the vernacular tongue, or Middle English. These writings reveal a deep interest in mystical experiences amongst all classes of society, and testify to a profound and pervasive piety. This piety was rooted in orthodox ecclesial tradition, but deeply influenced by the popular culture and devotions of the time, and is often very bold and imaginative. This weekend will examine this fascinating corpus of literature, delving into some the key primary sources.
