Originally written in the 15th century, the spiritual autobiography The Book of Margery Kempe was rediscovered in the 1930s; it gives insight on medieval female spiritualty and female Christian mysticism. This study of The Book of Margery Kempe investigates questions of authorship and also reveals what is now known about KempeAEs domestic life as married wife and mother of 14 children, and her later years when she went on pilgrimages to the Holy Land and various holy shrines in Europe. The study originates from a MasterAEs thesis submitted to the English Department of the University of Vienna. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
