Margery Kempe, the literate imitator of Continental mystics with God-given (and controlled) tears

October 20, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Fr. Luke Penkett is a solitary monk living in Norwich, who is currently Curator of the Margery Kempe Centre in King’s Lynn, Honorary Secretary of the Margery Kempe Society, and Book Reviews Editor of Medieval Mystical Theology. He is also writing a book on Margery Kempe. Margery lived at the same time as Julian of Norwich, and her book about her life is believed to be the first autobiography in English. She had many visions and experiences over the course of her life — she lived in Kings Lynn but travelled the globe. Fr, Penkett will discuss the importance of Margery and her religious experiences in the broader context of religious experience in Europe at the time.
