Front Cover
Darton Longman & Todd, 2001 - Devotional literature, English (Middle) - 192 pages
This book examines the extraordinary flowering of the English spirituality in the fourteenth and early fifiteen centuries, and shows its continuing power to nourish contempory life and prayer.Though each the writers discussed in this book each has a unique voice they share a common experience of living in an age of fear, violence and disintegration, and their work has a strange resonance for us.
