Without the theologians of the eleventh and twelfth centuries, without the anchoritic writings of the thirteenth century, Richard Rolle, Julian of Norwich, Walter Hilton, Margery Kempe could not have written as they did. Likewise, those who followed them - the Wycliffites, the Bridgeittines, the writers of religious lyrics -responded to those who had gone before. The articles presented here identify major themes and the web of influence that links them; new but solid interpretations are offered of the key figures and their background, and the emphasis is on the rich variety of mysticism these authors and texts embody.WILLIAM F. POLLARD is Professor of English at Huntingdon College; ROBERT BOENIGis Associate Professor of English at Texas A & M University. Contributors: THOMAS H. BESTUL, ROBERT BOENIG, RITAMARY BRADLEY, SUSAN DICKMAN, DOUGLAS GRAY, ROGER ELLIS, MICHAEL P. KUCZYNSKI, WILLIAM F. POLLARD, DENIS RENEVEY, ELLEN M. ROSS, ANNE SAVAGE, RENE TIXIER.
