             Charity turns out to be the virtue which is both the root
             and the fruit of salvation in Langland’s Piers Plowman, a
             late fourteenth-century poem, the greatest theological poem
             in English. It takes time, suffering and error upon error
             for Wille, the central protagonist in Piers Plowman, to
             grasp Charity. Wille is both a figure of the poet and a
             power of the soul, voluntas, the subject of charity.
             Langland’s poem offers a profound and beautiful
             exploration of Charity and the impediments to Charity, one
             in which individual and collective life is inextricably
             bound together. This exploration is characteristic of late
             medieval Christianity. As such it is also an illuminating
             work in helping one identify and understand what happened to
             this virtue in the Reformation. Only through diachronic
             studies which engage seriously with medieval writing and
             culture can we hope to develop an adequate grasp of the
             outcomes of the Reformation in theology, ethics and
             politics, and, I should add, the remakings of what we
             understand by “person” in these outcomes. Although this
             essay concentrates on one long and extremely complex
             medieval work, it actually belongs to a diachronic inquiry.
             This will only be explicit in some observations on Calvin
             when I consider Langland’s treatment of Christ’s
             crucifixion and in some concluding suggestions about the
             history of this virtue.},
