Allegories and Acrostics

Guillaume de Deguileville wrote allegories and acrostics, his most well-known piece is perhaps the Pilgrimage of the Soul, a valuable example of Cistercian poetry and late medieval piety. The soul leaves the body, descends into purgatory and is shown hell. Later (after a time of purification) the soul enters into heavenly bliss. An international conference on Guillaume will be held at the University of Lausanne on 21-23 July 2011. Click here for more information.
