    Abstract:
    Innocent III's decree requiring annual confession for all Christians led to the production of an astounding number of religious texts--initially, texts meant for priests to use to educate the laity but then also, and increasingly, texts intended for private consumption by the laity. This article explores the place of these texts in English literary history and their value in the classroom.
