A Fifteenth-century Confession Sermon on ‘Unkyndeness’ (CUL MS Gg 6.26) and Its Literary Parallels and Parodies

Incidental reference: in its elaboration on the double senses of ME kynde, i.e., “natural” or “of one’s kin,” and “grateful,” this vernacular sermon bears comparison with WL’s depiction of the Christ-Knight of B.9.5-9 and his subsequent disquisition on “kyndeness” and “unkyndeness” (B.6.84-89).
