Two New Monographs

If they are not already on your shelf, be sure to check out these two exciting new books:

WB Art         Feeling Like Saints

Kennedy, Kathleen E. The Courtly and Commercial Art of the Wycliffite Bible. Turnhout: Brepols, 2014. [From the publisher: “The Courtly and Commercial Art of the Wycliffite Bible examines the illuminations of the first complete translation of the Bible into English and situates this art within networks of artists catering to bourgeois and noble clientele in both London and the provinces from the late fourteenth century into the early sixteenth century.]

Somerset, Fiona. Feeling Like Saints: Lollard Writings after Wyclif. Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 2014. [From the publisher: “While lollardy has attracted much attention in recent years, much of what we think we know about this English religious movement is based on records of heresy trials and anti-lollard chroniclers. In Feeling Like Saints, Fiona Somerset demonstrates that this approach has limitations. A better basis is the five hundred or so manuscript books from the period (1375–1530) containing materials translated, composed, or adapted by lollard writers themselves. These writings provide rich evidence for how lollard writers collaborated with one another and with their readers to produce a distinctive religious identity based around structures of feeling.]
