This project offers a digital facsimile of the The Book of Margery Kempe alongside a transcription that solves many of the problems when print is used to represent medieval manuscripts. Modern transcriptions of medieval manuscripts have always faced compromises in their attempts to translate scribal practices to conventional typefaces and to readers unfamiliar with these practices. Visitors to our site can for the first time see the text of The Book of Margery Kempe stripped of annotating hands or preserved with these annotating hands in individual layers. Visitors will also see in the transcription fairly exact representations of medieval scribal practices including special characters, medieval punctuation, and abbreviations that transform or expand with a simple click (or tap). Scalable high‐resolution facsimiles of the manuscript offer many other opportunities for our visitors to investigate this important text. The British Library also offers our project's digital facsimile of the manuscript, available on their site.

The Book survives in a single manuscript: London, British Library, MS Additional 61823. A number of teaching editions have been published in recent years—all based on a critical edition in the EETS Original series (v. 212) from 1940 by Sanford Meech and Hope Emily Allen. This edition has many virtues, but it does not account completely for the interventions of annotating hands (most of these probably belonging to the Carthusians of Mount Grace Priory, themselves fascinated by Margery’s experiences) and it followed common practice in its own time by creating a hybrid critical and reader’s edition without offering a diplomatic transcription as a foundation for future scholars and editors.

Margery Kempe, on her pilgrimage to the Holy Places, copied those visions of Paula and Birgitta, their affective piety, their 'theatre of devotion,' their quasi-visions, their pilgrimages, journeying to Compostela, Rome, and Jerusalem, and she was to have them, too, be written down in her Book, the
