Abstract

This essay compares three late-medieval English versions of the Elucidarium alongside the original Latin text, exploring their specific contributions to the nature of fifteenth-century English pastoral care. It focuses primarily upon the important subjects of the Eucharist and the priesthood, both of particular significance in late-medieval England, and demonstrates the ways in which the text of the Elucidarium was reimagined in order to respond to changing contexts and the needs of different English audiences in the later Middle Ages.
