Reading Medieval Anchoritism

Ideology and Spiritual Practices

by Mari Hughes-Edwards

This interdisciplinary study of medieval English anchoritism from 1080-1450, explodes the myth of the anchorhold as solitary death-cell, reveals it instead as the site of potential intellectual exchange, and demonstrates an anchoritic spirituality in synch with the wider medieval world.
