Much of the translation is based on Hope Emily Allens Middle English edition of 1931. It is supplemented by more complete versions of the English Psalter and the Meditations on the Passion. It aims at a presentation of Rolle in todays language, and for readers with a modern approach to spirituality who are interested in the religious aims and idioms of the past. The book also seeks to convey some of Rolles religious fervor, and above all the measured cadence of his prose style, placing him within the context of the ideas and language of his own age.
