A. I. Doyle, R. Hanna, Hope Allen’s Writings Ascribed to Richard Rolle: A Corrected List of Copies (PJML 13)
Richard Rolle was perhaps the most influential English spiritual writer of the late Middle Ages. This volume provides references to the more than 600 surviving medieval books that offer the primary evidence for his works and their transmission. Hope Allen’s Writings Ascribed to Richard Rolle, now nearly a century old, is a foundational work of English palaeography. This volume extends Allen’s most basic contribution, her catalogue of manuscripts conveying Rolle’s works.
The late A. I. Doyle was Keeper of Rare Books in the University Library and Reader in Bibliography at the University of Durham. Ralph Hanna is Professor of Palaeography emeritus of Keble College, University of Oxford.
