During a period when death was an ever-present reality, the tradition of the ars moriendi provided instructions on how one must prepare for God's inevitable judgement. While examples of the tradition are found in virtually every European language, the ars moriendi in English comprises a strikingly rich corpus of literature that provides remarkable insight into the religious concerns of those living between the fifteenth century and the end of the seventeenth. This book collects together for the first time representative texts from the traditon of the English ars moriendi, chosen because they reflect the religious and literary developments of the period. Each work is thoroughly annotated, and the book contains a comprehensive introductory essay that focuses on the particular importance to the tradition of each work included in the collection.
