Since its rediscovery in 1934, The Book of Margery Kempe has generally been judged as over-emotional and naïve.
Naoë Kukita Yoshikawa argues instead that The Book of Margery Kempe is a creative experience of memory as spiritual progress. Yoshikawa explores Margery’s meditational experience in the context of the visual and verbal iconography and provides a comprehensive analysis of Margery’s meditative experience as it is structured in the book, paying particular attention to develop a coherent theology of the five major meditational expreiences that influence Kempe’s spiritual progress.
Naoë Kukita Yoshikawa teaches in the faculty of humanities and social sciences at Shizuoka University. She has published widely on Margery Kempe’s life and work.

1. Margery’s Conversion in Advent and Infancy Meditation

2. The Jerusalem Pilgrimage and Spiritual Progress
