Richard of St Victor translated his own 14th-century treatise on contemplation into Middle English. This version of the work attempts to capture the qualities of the translation that, while condensed in length, contains thoughts and advice of his own that are not found in the original. It is regarded as one of the classics of English devotional literature, plain, homely, and powerful in style, deeply pious but with a freshness and sincerity that has remained through the centuries.
