Title : Margery Kempe: An Exemplar of Late Medieval English Piety [The author argues that scholars for the most part have not put Margery Kempe within the context of late medieval English religious beliefs and practices. He suggests that Kempe was not religiously abnormal and that the themes in her book reflect contemporary religious concerns. Powell argues that people reacted badly to Kempe because she was annoying. Furthermore, Kempe was writing an account of her life as a saint, and persecution from her peers was part of her suffering. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Medieval Soteriologies: Anselm of Canterbury and Julian of Norwich [The author argues that, while Julian gives evidence of some knowledge of Anselm’s ideas, she puts her emphasis on different concepts in her explanations of salvation.

Humanity needed to put its trust in God, who was infinitely loving. Julian was distrustful of an undue preoccupation with sin and guilt. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
