Perilous Passages: The Book of Margery Kempe, 1534-1934 (The New Middle Ages)
Perilous Passages: The Book of Margery Kempe, 1534-1934 (The New Middle Ages)
Price: £52.25

4.0 out of 5 stars An important contribution, 25 Jun. 2014
This book traces the history of the unique manuscript of The Book of Margery Kempe from the 1530s to the 1930s, when it was 'rediscovered'. It's a short book but full of useful information and is an exciting account of the kind of quest that literary scholars follow. Chappell writes with great clarity and energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-produced, easy to use, and full of interesting things, 26 Mar. 2012
This is an easy-to-use guidebook to all facets of Jewish London, from the middle ages to the present day. The emphasis is on walking tours around the city, and it's very well illustrated. There are a lot of 'hidden gems' - the book will appeal to Londoners as well as visitors to the city. Also plenty of handy information - restaurants, cafes etc., - and well-suited to all visitors interested in Jewish heritage, from people of religion to those without.
