Description

The Meditations are one of the most important devotional texts from the later Middle Ages. In this significant (and already MLA award winning) new book, McNamer edits, translates, and presents her argument for its status as the original vernacular text, composed by a Franciscan nun whose contributions were later obscured by the friar who expanded and reorganized the text. This roundtable will bring together scholars working on devotional manuscripts, Italian religious literature, women's spirituality, and Franciscan culture to discuss McNamer’s significant contributions and opportunities for new work. McNamer will comment. For more information about the book, see http://undpress.nd.edu/books/P03340
