The Book of Margery Kempe
1. How does Margery's spirituality compare with Julian's? Whose do you admire more? With whose do you identify more?
2. What seems to be Margery's main problem?
3. Pious people are often subject to temptations that less scrupulous people are not. What is the sin described in Margery's text that would be easy for pious people to fall into?
4. Margery gives us (through her terrible honesty) another insight into the psychology of sin (besides that noted in #3). What happens in Margery's life that makes her so vulnerable to the sexual temptation she experiences?
