More About the Author

Anthony Bale is Professor of Medieval Studies, Birkbeck College, London. He has published widely on various medieval topics, including Anglo-Jewish history, Christian-Jewish relations, the poetry of Geoffrey Chaucer and John Lydgate, the cult of St Edmund of East Anglia, and fifteenth-century literature. His most recent book is a translation of The Book of Marvels and Travel by John Mandeville. He was awarded the Philip Leverhulme Prize in 2011. His new translation and edition of The Book of Margery Kempe is forthcoming.

Product Description


The consistently high standard of the articles found here make this book a mandatory addition to the shelves of readers interested in St Edmund. However, its broad chronological and geographical range, together with its generous scope of enquiry, means that it deserves a wider readership. Anyone looking for thought-provoking approaches to the study of changing attitudes toward medieval cults, and how these attitudes were materially reflected, should also be encouraged to take a look.
