Contrition in the Middle Dutch Beatrijs

On 15 June 2016 I’ll be presenting a Germanic Studies Research Seminar at the University of Sheffield on the complicated nature of sorrow and contrition, and the importance of confession in the Middle Dutch poem Beatrijs. And at the IMC in Leeds (session 1639) I shall address the relationship between contrition and sorrow in this poem in greater detail.
