Thetford Grammar School's formation is shrouded in mystery, but it may date back as far as 631. First re-founded by the Bishop of Norwich in 1114, the school was revitalised following the dissolution of the monasteries, and firmly re-established by an Act of Parliament in 1610 and then by a new foundation document in 1876. A Girls' School was set up alongside the ancient Boys' School in 1888 and both schools spent the middle years of the twentieth century as county council grammar schools, before their re-foundation as a co-educational independent school in 1981. Written to coincide with the 450th anniversary of Thetford Grammar School's re-founding and drawing on the school's archives, David Seymour discusses four and a half centuries of governance, pupils, headteachers, ushers and assistant teachers, phases of building, and the development of the curriculum.

With this witty and elegant new book, one of our leading medievalists breaks new ground in fifteenth-century scholarship, a critical site of cultural study. Delany examines the work of English Augustinian friar Osbern Bokenham, a figure never before written on at any length, and fully explores the relations between history and literature in a particularly turbulent period in English history, a period extending from the "War of the Roses" through the "Hundred Years War." Delany focuses on Bokenham's major work, Legends of Holy Women--the first collection of all female saint's lives in any language--composed between 1443 and 1447. Organizing the book around the image of the body--a medieval procedure becoming popular once again in current attention to the social construction of the body--she looks at a number of major concerns. One is Bokenham's relation to the body of English literature, particularly Chaucer. Another is the entire genre of saints's lives, particularly female saints's lives, with their striking uses of the body of the saint to generate their meaning. Yet another is the image of the body politic and its importance in the political and dynastic crises of fifteenth century England. Delany draws these diverse strands together to create an innovative and readable portrait of Bokenham's work and its larger cultural and political importance, offering a host of new insights into this unjustly neglected period in English literary history.
