The Wooing of Our Lord and the Wooing Group Prayers

Full Product Description

The Wooing of Our Lord occupies a seminal position in the history of English literature and the development of English religious devotion. Dating from the second quarter of the thirteenth century, it is one of a group of texts written in English at a time when the language of literature and the court was Anglo-Norman French, and when the language of church and state was Latin. The Wooing of Our Lord is also a highly skilled composition, a work which combines beautiful and poetic expression with a profound affective theology. Its first-person female narrator speaks directly to Christ, becoming the voice of the reader whom the text guides through a passionate meditation upon the magnitude of ChristAEs love, his sufferings in his Passion, and the response of the individual soul. Catherine Innes-ParkerAEs graceful new translation is paired with the original Middle English dialect in a facing-page format.

The Wooing of Our Lord and the Wooing Group Prayers was published by Broadview Press Ltd in August 2015. The ISBN for The Wooing of Our Lord and the Wooing Group Prayers is 9781551113821.
