The 14th century was a time of great social and institutional turbulence set against the backdrop of the Black Death. This most haunting meditation on the suffering and death of Christ by Richard Rolle of Hampole, an English mystic and hermit, reflects the intensely personal religious fervor of the time. It is marked by a vivid awareness of Our Lord’s redemptive sacrifice, man’s sinfulness and the constant need to "set thine heart burning in Christ’s love." Translated from the Latin.
