Feeling Like Saints

This chapter lays out the groundwork for a newly broadened understanding of the audiences and purposes of lollard writings and a newly sharpened picture of their central characteristics. Specifically, it uses a lengthy cycle of sermons from the 1390s (SS74) as a springboard for discussion into lollard pastoral teaching. The writer of the SS74 had aimed to reconfigure traditional pastoral teaching so that it would reflect his new convictions and lead his own little flock toward salvation, although the chapter argues that this proclivity for grassroots reinvention is not particularly distinctive of lollard pastoral teaching. Rather, it presents a new and distinctive basis for thinking about church membership and religious practice.

Keywords:   SS74, lollard pastoral teaching, pastoral teaching, traditional teaching, church membership, religious practice, lollard writings, lollard characteristics
