This exploration of Late Medieval piety uses the figure of Mary to probe questions of changing religious perceptions and portrayals, and issues of gender. Based on popular sermons, Ellington looks at the importance of Marian devotion, and argues for a transformation in emphasis in the public portrayal of Mary from the 15th to 17th century, a shift that focused more on the spiritual side of Mary, down-playing her role as the bodily mother of Christ.
