The Milieu and Context of the Wooing Group, Hardback Book

The Milieu and Context of the Wooing Group Hardback

Edited by Ms Susannah Mary Chewning


This book brings together the most current interpretations of the Wohunge Group from scholars currently working on the fields of medieval spirituality, gender, and the anchoritic tradition, providing literary, theological, linguistic, and cultural context for the works associated with the Wohunge Group (a collection of texts in English written by an unknown author in the late twelfth to early thirteenth centuries).

These works are unique in their context - written almost certainly for a group of women living as anchoresses and recluses who were literate in English and were interested in guidance both in spiritual and worldly issues.

The book discusses and explains the impact and significance of these works and situates them within the continuum of medieval theological and literary culture.
