The English Text of the Ancrene Riwle Magdalene    College Cambridge MS. Pepys 2498 (Early English Text Society Original Series)

This classic of English devotional literature was written for three anchoresses by a chaplain in about 1230 and is divided into eight sections, each dealing in an accessible way with one division of the religious rule. As well as being of historical importance, it is also a work of great charm and expressiveness, and is regarded as one of the greatest prose work of the Middle Ages.
