Show Summary Details


The introduction to this text describes the tradition of Good Friday preaching, and traces the development of several devotional topoi, notably the figure of Christ the lover‐knight and the relationship of the “book of the cross” image to the medieval Charters of Christ. It compares John Fisher's emphasis on the crucifix with remarks made in the Paraclesis of Erasmus.
