This book, originally written by a priest, instructs spirtually-minded women on how to live a spirtual life as an anchoress. An anchoress is a woman, typically young, who devotes her life to prayer and contemplation while living out her life in a "anchor-hold," a small room in a medieval church.
Equal parts Christianity instruction manual, hymnal, spiritual essay and textbook, this work thoroughly--and beautifully--details how an anchoress should lead a chaste, prayerful life. Though many of the tenets put forth in this book seem draconian and unneccesary by today's standards, the reader cannot doubt the intelligence and fatherly care of the author and the devotion of the intended audience. Modern readers can enjoy its poetic writing, take comfort (or unease) in its message, and learn a bit of Latin from its frequent use (don't worry--there are plenty of translations and footnotes).
This is a very serious book and to read it all requires some effort. I recommend reading it in short, frequent sessions. It has much to offer for anyone interested in Christianity, spirituality or the cloistered life.

Ancrene Wisse, for anyone who's read Middle English, is typical of the language: difficult to understand, assistance necessary. The intro is worth reading; the glossary comprehensive and well laid out.

This is an excellent edition of the Ancrene Wisse with helpful notes though the reader should be very familiar with Middle English before purchasing!
