  • Title: Tak and Bren Hir: Lollardry as Conversion Motif in "The Book of Margery Kempe" [The author argues that the text presents Margery as religously and socially aberrant. Yet this is necessary to prove that she is chosen by God as a spiritual instructor. The charges of Lollardy allow her doubters to convert eventually, while also emphasizing her orthodoxy. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
