Clerical Discourse and Lay Audience in Late Medieval England by Fiona Somerset
Book DescriptionThe translation of learned Latin materials into English between around 1370 and 1410 was a highly controversial activity. It was thought likely to make available to lay audiences the authoritative and intellectual information and methods of argument previously only accessible to an educated elite - and with that knowledge the power of information. Fiona Somerset's 1998 study examines what kinds of academic material were imported into English, what sorts of audience were projected for this kind of clerical discourse and how writers positioned themselves with respect to potential audience and opponents. The well-known concerns with clerical corruption and lay education of authors such as Langland, Trevisa, and Wyclif are linked to those of more obscure writers in both Latin and English, some only recently edited, or only extant in manuscript.

Feeling Like Saints, Hardback (April 2014)
Fiona Somerset examines the lollard movement by closely reading their own writings, which provide rich evidence for how lollard writers collaborated with one another and with their readers to produce a distinctive religious identity based around structures of feeling.
Wycliffite Spirituality, Paperback (January 2009)
Dating from the late medieval period in England, this collection of modern English translations of Wyclif's writings, Wycliffite texts, and the records of heresy trials discloses that, far from practicing a wholly negative Christianity, Wycliffites were as keenly interested in the spiritual life as many of their contemporaries.
