(p.273) Conclusion
Feeling Like Saints

Fiona Somerset

Cornell University Press

This concluding chapter examines a largely neglected short text that eschews polemical declaration but that nonetheless within its short length touches on all the characteristic emphases in lollard writings that we have discovered across the course of this book, compactly providing us with an occasion to draw them together and to demonstrate how they allow us to identify and describe lollard writings more effectively. Fyve Wyttes presents a good example of how lollard writings encourage their readers’ active engagement in the discovery of truth by teaching them to doubt and question. It also provides a final example of how late medieval usage of “lollard” was often more flexible than that in some recent scholarship.

Keywords:   Fyve Wyttes, lollard writings, reader engagement, truth, lollard scholarship
