Vol. 62 The Middle English Mirror: Sermons from Quinquagesima to Pentecost

The Middle English Mirror, a fourteenth-century prose translation of the thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman Miroir by Robert de Gretham, is a text of cultural and linguistic value. As a cycle of sermons addressed to a lay audience, it offers extensive material for the study of popular preaching in fourteenth-century England. Four of the six surviving manuscripts exemplify that variety of fourteenth-century London language designated ‘Type II’ by M. L. Samuels.
