Abstract

This session will examine Carthusian readers and writers of the 15th century. The speakers will discuss writings on the spiritual life and the circulation and influence of these works not only within the charterhouses but also and especially among other religious orders and the laity in England, Burgundy, and the Low Countries. The texts to be examined include both Latin and vernacular works of devotion such as the Viola Animae pf Petrus Dorlandus and Guillaume Deguileville’s Pilgremage of the Sowle.
