Completion of the Critical Edition of Book II of Walter Hilton's "Scale of Perfection"

"The Scale of Perfection" is the most important piece of late medieval English literature for which no critical edition exists. This project brings such an edition to completion, for publication, prospectively, by the Early English Text Society. The project also speaks to broader issues of textuality, how texts were read and made meaningful, and how modern digital media provide new ways of doing critical editions.
