Rolle, Richard (c.1300–49). Christian hermit and mystic. Born near Pickering in Yorkshire, he became a hermit as a young man, latterly near the convent of Cistercian nuns at Hampole, where he died, perhaps of the Black Death. His writings, both in Latin and English, give expression to a highly affective mystical experience of ‘heat’, ‘sweetness’, and ‘song’.
