This edition brings together for the first time key texts representing the writings of the medieval English mystics. The texts are newly edited from manuscripts, and are supplemented with notes and a glossary. The book focuses on five major authors, Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Dame Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe; extracts from contemporary translations are also included to illustrate the reception of European mystical texts in later medieval England.
