The Prickynge of Love is a Middle English translation of James of Milan's Stimulus Amoris, usually attributed to the influential Augustinian mystic Walter Hilton (c.1340-96). The text contains a series of meditations on the Passion of Christ and a lengthy treatise on the spiritual life, and proved extremely popular in late medieval England. The illiterate medieval authoress Margery Kempe had a copy read to her, and quoted it in her own work. The text survives in 10 complete manuscripts and 6 fragments; these here are previously unrecorded and contain parts of the end of ch.29 and the beginning of ch.30 (H. Kane, The Prickynge of Love, 1983).
