Product Overview

1910. Capgrave, learned traveler and friar of Lynn in Norfolk, was an indefatigable student, and reputed to be the best known man of letters of his time. His reputation came from the greater part of his works which are theological: sermons, commentaries and lives of saints. A noble gentlewoman begged Capgrave to write St. Augustine for her; St. Gilbert was translated in the same form, save some additions, at the prayer of Nicholas Reysby, Master of the order of St. Gilbert and designed for the anchoresses of that order. Capgrave appends a translated summary of his sermon on the various Augustinian orders, preached in Cambridge, 1422, but revised later, for Reysby and others who wished to know diffusely of the subject.
