The Riwle (also known as Ancrene Wisse) is a thirteenth-century guide for anchoresses which reached a much wider public in the Middle Ages. The Vernon version, copied in the second half of the fourteenth century, is the last in the series of editions of individual manuscript versions to be published by the Early English Text Society, and follows the editorial methods established by the series. The text of the MS is reproduced as it stands, without emendations. Scribal "errors" and significant variant readings from two of the most important other MSS are given in the Apparatus.
