    本書仔細地探索十五世紀英格蘭的宗教生活,並提供了中世紀晚期英格蘭宗教理論和實踐的描述,進一步解釋在羅拉德激進主義(Lollardy)發生後的創傷壓力下的生活,以及歐洲階級鬆動、反教權主義與世俗精神解放下等等的複雜層面。After Arundel意味的不僅是與阿倫德爾大主教掛勾的鎮壓性立法,After Arundel同時也提出一令人省思的議題,即後人需要什麼樣的典範和分類,以超越阿倫德爾在文藝研究上作為蒼穹裡一顆恆星的地位。After Arundel一書旨在為下一階段的學術探索提供新的工具和技術詞彙,使學者能持續研究此時期晦澀不明的宗教態度和作品。
[Original description]
England's religious life in the fifteenth century is worthy of sustained, nuanced and meticulous analysis. This book offers a portrait of late medieval English religious theory and praxis that complicates any attempt to present the period as either quivering in the post-traumatic stress of Lollardy, or basking in the autumn sunshine of an uncritical and self-satisfied hierarchy's failure to engage with undoubted European and domestic crises in ecclesiology, pastoral theology, anti-clericalism and lay spiritual emancipation. After Arundel means not just because of or despite Archbishop Arundel (and the repressive legislation associated with him), for it also asks what models and taxonomies will be needed to move beyond Arundel as a fixed star in the firmament of (especially literary) scholarship in the period. It aims to supply the next phase of scholarly exploration of this still often dark continent of religious attitudes and writing with new tools and technical vocabularies, as well as to suggest new directions of travel.
Vincent Gillespie, medieval literary theory and the psychology of literary response; poetic identity in the Middle Ages; Nietzschean slow reading; medieval religious writing ("vernacular theology"); Syon Abbey; history of the book.

"The volume will probably not be the last word on this issue, but the range and the quality of its scholarship makes an important and welcome contribution to it. It also shows, incidentally, that fifteenth- century English religious literature, certainly in its sociological aspects, has emerged from the shadows in which literary and social studies had kept it for a long time." (Siegfried Wenzel, in The Catholic Historical Review, January 2013, Vol. 99, N° 1, p. 138-139)
"(...) in After Arundel we have a vigorous companion to fifteenth-century English religious writing. Drawing on the multidisciplinary insights of thirty scholarly experts, this collection demonstrates how the spiritual energy of fifteenth-century England found literary expression both with the endorsement and in spite of the mandates of the English episcopacy." (Michael P. Kuczynski, in: Speculum, 90/1, January 2015, p. 255-256)
