Product Description

The Book of Margery Kempe records in her own words, with the help of a scribe, her unusual and devout life. After the birth of her first child she suffered from a period of great temptation and insanity, until the Lord Jesus appeared to give her grace and calm again. Many instances follow of her gift of tears and miraculous answers to prayer. Her mystical revelations reveal the intense love Christ has for us.

Publisher's Description

"You can boldly take me in the arms of your soul and kiss my mouth, my head, and my feet as sweetly as you want"
 
The story of the eventful and controversial life of Margery Kempe - wife, mother, businesswoman, pilgrim and visionary - is the earliest surviving autobiography in English. Here Kemp recounts in vivid, unembarrassed detail the madness that followed the birth of the first of her fourteen children, the failure of her brewery business, her dramatic call to the spiritual life, her visions and uncontrollable tears, the struggle to convert her husband to a vow of chastity and her pilgrimages to Europe and the Holy Land. Margery Kempe could not read of write, and dictated her remarkable story late in life. It remains an extraordinary record of human faith and a portrait of a medieval woman of unforgettable character and courage.
