The latest volume of proceedings in the series initiated by Marion Glasscoe in 1980 shares with its predecessors a concentrated focus on the English mystical authors and the reception of their continental contemporaries in medieval England. At the same time, it bears witness to the range of disciplinary approaches - literary, historical, theological, art historical - which are currently bearing fruit in research on the medieval mystical tradition. The thirteen papers include new work on Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe, the Cloud- author and the thirteenth-century anchoritic texts; texts connected with Syon Abbey and the Bridgettines; and the reception of Ruusbroec, Eckhart and the continental holy women in England. Among the themes explored are the spirituality of the religious orders; gender, class and mystical discourse; the theological precision of mystical language, and the translatio of the continental mystics into English cultural forms.
