Religious Practice and Everyday Life
This chapter shows that lollard writings about prayer attach distinctive meanings to prayer as an activity and to the words that should be prayed, even as they draw very extensively on the common ground they share with the mainstream tradition. The chapter notes, however, that how widely the lollard writings on prayer selected for discussion were read, and by whom, and how they influenced the religious practice of ordinary people, some of whom may also have been investigated for heresy, remains uncertain. It emphasizes that the relationship between writings about prayer and the meanings ordinary people attached to prayer are not completely unrecoverable and deserve further investigation.
