This volume presents a variety of texts relating to the fourteenth-century Yorkshire hermit and mystical writer, Richard Rolle. Most of the material has not previously been published, although some of it can confidently be attributed to Rolle's authorship. Three other unpublished texts are included because they were attributed to Rolle in the Middle Ages. The volume includes a new edition of Rolle's English lyrics, based upon a critical examination of all known manuscript witnesses. It concludes with three anonymous Northern texts concerned with the eremetical life. This edition complements Richard Rolle: Prose and Verse, edited for the Society by S. J. Ogilvie-Thomson (EETS, O. S. 293 (1988) ). Richard Rolle is a major author of the fourteenth century, influential in his own time, and attracting much later scholarly attention.
