Pilgrim & Preacher

The Audiences and Observant Spirituality of Friar Felix Fabri (1437/8-1502)

Kathryne Beebe

Oxford Historical Monographs

  • First major modern study of Felix Fabri in English
  • Focuses on the subject of pilgrimage, particularly Jerusalem pilgrimage
  • Expands on the relatively-limited current study of the Dominican Observant movement and how it worked upon late-medieval religious imagination, especially in the context of pilgrimage writing, the interest of urban elites, and the care of female religious houses
  • Places late-medieval pilgrimage literature into a wider historical and cultural context
  • Places a focus on feminine spirituality of the time, exploring the idea of the 'virtual' or 'imagined' pilgrimages made by enclosed nuns and religious women in Fabri's care
