Overview

Overview

These papers are the proceedings of the third international Exeter symposium, and promote an interdisciplinary approach to the understanding of the medieval mystical tradition in England. This is an area of study which does not fruitfully lend itself to any single academic discipline in isolation; here, theologians, historians, literary crtitics, textual scholars, those engaged in the study of semiotics and those involved in the practice of psychiatric medicine exchange ideas and explore together the differing aspects which engage them in this field of study.
