Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on Omnis plantacio, an English sermon that shows how a series of complex relationships were evolving between writing, heresy, and anticlericalism in late medieval England. It discusses the intraclerical critiques contained in the sermon and its relentless castigation of failing clerical ranks. It compares and contrasts the works of several authors including Piers Plowman and some Wycliffite texts, and Thomas Netter and John Audelay.
