Title : Margery Kempe and King’s Lynn [King’s Lynn, Kempe’s hometown in East Anglia, played a central role in shaping her self-image. Home, family, social networks, and domestic space are key concerns for Kempe, whose “Book” expresses a tension between the desire for inclusion (acceptance by the townspeople) and the simultaneous desire to be excluded by society (in order to have her special social status acknowledged). Kempe’s double perspective resolves the perceived opposition between her guarded, private married life and her highly active public life. The article includes two appendices (a list of the citizens of King’s Lynn and a list of Kempe’s neighbors) and a map of medieval King’s Lynn. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Why Found a Medieval Cistercian Nunnery? [Isabel de Aubigny, Countess of Arundel, was a noble-born English woman who established a Cistercian monastery in the thirteenth century. Isabel’s husband and many close relatives died when she was young, and she chose to remain a widow. After a series of additional family deaths, Isabel used the dowry she had been given by her father upon her marriage in order to establish a Cistercian nunnery. She had many motivations for founding the monastery: religious convictions (doing charity to benefit her soul in the afterlife), economic and political goals (disposing of estates), and social aspirations and responsibilities (maintaining family honor and increasing her social prestige).

Author(s): McSheffrey, Shannon.
Title : Women and Lollardy: A Reassessment [The author examines the role of women in the Lollard movement (a heretical sect in medieval England) by focusing on a Lollard community in fifteenth-century East Anglia. Members of this community believed that women as well as men could become preachers; they held that marriage was a private affair that did not need solemnization in church; and many social factors, such as the influence of one’s immediate social circle, compelled both men and women to join the movement. The author explores the court records of two female Lollards, Hawise Mone and Margery Baxter, and shows them to be assertive and daring women. Nonetheless, the author concludes that women were not any more involved in the Lollard movement than they were in orthodox religion. Title note supplied by Feminae].
