Overview

Overview

Concordances, freshly edited from the principal manuscripts, to two of the most important prose works in early medieval English.
The Katherine Group and the Wooing Group are among the most important prose works in early medieval English, both for their long-acknowledged linguistic and literary richness and their significance as texts for women. These concordances, freshly edited from the principal manuscripts, provide a readily accessible tool for investigating the lexical, thematic, and other properties of the alliterative virgin martyr legends and other texts of the Katherine Group together with the related spiritual meditations of the Wooing Group (in which female voices woo Christ). Whether for research or teaching, work on each of these famous Groups in itself and on the relations between them will be facilitated by the inclusion of the two concordances in the one volume.

LORNA STEVENSON gained her Ph.D. from Liverpool University; JOCELYN WOGAN-BROWNE teaches in the English Department at Fordham University.
