A Concordance to the Ancrene Wisse
Scholarly discussion of Ancrene Wisse usually refers to Tolkien's diplomatic edition of this manuscript and a definitive critical edition based on all manuscripts has yet to appear. Folio and line references in the Concordance are to the Tolkien edition and follow the manuscript line for line. The Concordance is an important tool for the study of prose style, lexis, the history of the English language, and, of course, indispensable for all literary and linguistic study of Ancrene Wisse itself.
