Product Overview

This volume makes available for the first time a critical edition of "The Doctrine of the Hert," a fifteenth-century English-language translation of "De doctrina cordis, " which was a thirteenth-century Latin devotional treaty addressed to nuns. Offering a full textual commentary, this edition of the "Doctrina" also provides an introduction that not only examines current thinking on the treatise''s authorship and envisioned primary audience, but also takes advantage of recent scholarly breakthroughs in our understanding of late medieval female spirituality.
