In what varieties of ways is late medieval literature inflected by spiritual insight and desires? What weaves of literary cloth especially suit religious insight? In this collection dedicated to Elizabeth D. Kirk, Emeritus Professor of English at Brown University, several renowned scholars assess those related issues in a range of Medieval texts.

'Rarely does a book of essays honoring a professor have the range, depth, and distinction of this one. Medievalists with very varied interests - Chaucer, Langland, Gower, the Gawain poet, Franciscan thought, the cycle plays, Margery Kempe, and many others - will all find important contributions in this outstanding collection. Elizabeth Kirk should be proud indeed of Mindful Spirit.' - Gretchen Mieszkowski, University of Houston-Clear Lake

'This is a fascinating collection of interdisciplinary essays in honor of a fine scholar, ranging across literature and poetics, history, theology and iconography. Subjects include mnemonic techniques, affect and sovereignty in medieval drama, salvation and the soul in Piers Plowman, Wycliff's apparent support for women priests, and Amazons in La?amon. The volume includes important re-readings of poems by Chaucer in the light of contemporary events. Together, the essays form a medievalists' fair field, an of-the-moment display of work and wit.' - David Lawton, Washington University in St Louis
