Vernacular Religious Writing in Twelfth- and Thirteenth-Century England

updated: 
Monday, August 15, 2011 - 3:35pm
Early Middle English Society

The traditional view of medieval English literary history holds that vernacular literary production in England took a major hit in the immediate aftermath of the Norman Conquest. Indeed, some scholars would have us believe that no important English prose or poetry may be found in post-Conquest England until the early- to mid-thirteenth century. Homilies and other religious texts, however, continued to be produced (in English as well as Anglo-Norman), and they make up a large portion of the surviving vernacular literature from twelfth- and thirteenth-century England.
