Margery Kempe


This is an account of the medieval mystic and pilgrim Margery Kempe. Kempe, who had fourteen children, travelled all over Europe and recorded a series of unusual events and religious visions in her work ‘The Book of Margery Kempe’, which is often called the first autobiography in the English language. Anthony Bale charts Kempe’s life and tells her story through the places, relationships, objects, and experiences that influenced her.
