Pierce the Ploughman’s Crede’ is a medieval poem thought to be written at the end of the 14th-century. This collection of English passages condemns and criticizes friars and church fathers, notably those of Franciscan, Dominican, Austin, and Carmelite orders. This crede ‘stars’ Piers Ploughman, who was originally conceived by 14th-century poet William Langland. And while there is no definitive proof, many scholars attribute ‘Crede’ to Langland.

 

The contents of this work closely resemble that of ‘Plowman’s Tale’ and ‘Prayer of the Plowman’ indicating that religious values are the true virtues of the poor. These poems, along with a few others that make up the ‘Piers Plowman Tradition’ were prose fiction written to highlight the Peasants Revolt during the reign of Elizabeth I.

 

First printed in 1533, ‘Crede’ did not see another printing until the early 19th century. This 1894 Jusserand edition was hand-numbered 49 out of a mere 65 copies and is signed by Jusserand himself.
