|Genre||medieval prose allegory|
The Abbey of the Holy Ghost is a medieval prose allegory, ca. 1350–1375. The text is preserved in at least 26 manuscripts, often followed by the Charter of the Abbey of the Holy Ghost. The text advises lay women on how to live a contemplative life outside a monastery; the companion Charter speaks of the fall and salvation.
