This is the first edition in modern English of the middle English writings of this fourteenth-century mystic and spiritual director. Devoted to scripture and to the Fathers, skilled in the use of vibrant imagery to describe union with God and insistent on the possibility of that union in this life, Rolle became one of the most popular of the Middle English mystics. Treatises on the Psalter, the Ten Commandments, the Passion, and allegorical homilies make up this volume. Preface by Valerie Lagorio.
An Eighth Day View:
This volume includes a translation of the major prose works, several of the ascribed lyrics and a selection of the commentaries written in English by this 14th-century (c. 1300-1349) English mystical writer and hermit.
