The English Manuscripts of Richard Rolle
A Descriptive Catalogue
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
Richard Rolle (d. 1349)—Yorkshire hermit, religious writer, visionary, and mystical wanderer—was widely recognized in the later English Middle Ages as a major spiritual author. Though still an enigma for most scholars, Rolle was a prolific writer who authored over 120 volumes in his lifetime, many of which are central to our understanding of the sacred culture of his period. This volume assembles the breadth of his writings together for the first time in an author-based bibliography, accompanied by an introduction to the context and significance of his writings, providing invaluable data for Rolle scholars, as well as for others working on medieval religious literature and culture.
