Abstract

The essay explores the way in which the author, Robert Mannyng, imagines his text's audience and reception contexts within the pages of his work _Handlyng Synne_. The actual limited material survival of the work is described and compared to the ways in which the author situated his work, imagining aural reception contexts among audiences of a mixed-status laity who would be read to by a clerical lector.
