The fifteenth century defies consensus on fundamental issues; most scholars agree, however, that the period outgrew the Middle Ages, that it was a time of transition and a passage to modern times. "Fifteenth-Century Studies" offers essays on diverse aspects of the period, including liberal and fine arts, historiography, medicine, and religion. Volume 38 addresses a broad spectrum of topics: monastic reformation of domestic space in Richard Whitford's "Werke for Housholders"; Margery Kempe and spectatorship in medieval drama; "The Book of Margery Kempe" and the trial of Joan of Arc; a new edition and interpretations of "The Book of the Duke and Emperor" in the context of MS Manchester, Chetham's Library 8009 (Mun. A.6.31); two cultural perspectives on the Battle of Lippa, Transylvania (1551); translation and manipulation of audience expectations in "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight"; the dry tree legend in medieval literature; and Wessel Gansfort, John Mombaer, and medieval technologies of the self. Book reviews conclude the volume. Contributors: Brandon Alakas, Maria Dobozy, Andrew Eichel, Rosanne Gasse, Kate McLean, Jesse Njus, Sarah Ritchey, P. R. Robins. Barbara I.
