  • Title: Gerson on Lay Devotion [Jean Gerson had a double view of excesses in religion. On the one hand, he took a tolerant view of the well-meaning excesses of lay people, believing they could be led to right practices. On the other, he feared those who arrogated to themselves unique insights despite their lack of training. This stricture applied both to women and to men like Jacques of Bingen. Gerson was capable of changing his mind, as when he withdrew support of Ermine of Reims. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
