Studies in Spirituality This study asks fundamental questions about the readership for such works and then builds upon an analysis of Fabri's audiences to reassess the nature of piety, and the place both pilgrimage literature and Observant refrom had in it, in late-medieval germany

Christopher Ocker, German History a comprehensive, authoritative and clear presentation of the Dominican's four pilgrimage accounts and their audiences ... Beebe makes a stronger contribution to deep currents of late medieval culture and recent scholarship

Kim M. Phillips, American Historical Review Beebe's meticulous study will stimulate further research into such matters. Her book provides an invaluable lesson on the benefits of focusing close attention on authorial purpose and audience reception, and her insights will transform our future readings.

Erin Maglaque, English Historical Review a fascinating read, especially for historians broadly interested in this complicated period which spans the late medieval and early modern.

Sabine von Heusinger, German Historical Institute London Bulletin a scholarly study with a defined problem and methodology, and has thereby made an important contribution to historical research. Her focus in this respect is on the production and reception of the pilgrimage accounts. The strength of the study undoubtedly lies in the comprehensive investigation of the manuscript transmission of the four pilgrimage accounts from Fabri's pen.

Kathryne Beebe is originally from just south of Kansas City, is now based in the United States after almost ten years in the UK. Before joining the Department of History at the University of Texas at Arlington in August 2013, she taught at Southeast Missouri State for three years. Prior to that, Dr Beebe was the VH Galbraith Teaching & Research Fellow at St. Hilda's College and a Junior Research Fellow in History at Balliol College, Oxford. She earned her MSt. in Historical Research and her D.Phil. in Medieval (Modern) History whilst a student at Pembroke College, Oxford. Her research interests include medieval pilgrimage, the history of the book, women's history and the cultural history of spirituality. At present, Kathryne is engaged upon a project entitled "Holy Places and Holy Writ-Travel as Text in the Late Middle Ages," where she is investigating the connection between spiritual pilgrimage (for travellers who journeyed only in the imagination) and Observant reform in medieval Europe.
