This volume deals with the ways in which religious Faith was communicated and adapted during the late medieval period and after, and with the ways in which spirituality, culture, written texts and gender interacted during the same period. Drawing on texts like the Book of Margery Kempe, popular prayers, romances and devotions, well-known devout practices, mystical and visionary writing, and devout representations like the Arma Christi, the book addresses the ways in which these both informed and were informed by attitudes towards Faith and Belief which continue today. Subjects include: the development of religious attitudes; devotion to Christ's blood; the influence of mysticism on literary texts; Chaucer's feminism; Eastern sources; and the transmission of medieval spirituality into the New World.Table of ContentsThe Origin of Affective DevotionBuddhism and Spirituality in Medieval EnglandThe Gods Appear: Representing the Divine in Quest NarrativeIs the Book of Margery Kempe a Feminist Text?Feminism and Spirituality in Chaucer: The Second Nun's TaleChrist's BloodThe Liberation of Mysticism: A Reflection on Richard RolleThe Arma Christi and Power: Meditation, Motivation and DisplayThe New World"... an intriguing and provoking discussion which should appeal to a wide readership."--Christopher Holdsworth
