About Thomas à Kempis
Thomas à Kempis (1380–1471) was born in Kempen, Germany. In 1392, Thomas travelled to the Netherlands to attend school, and there he was introduced to the Brethren of the Common Life, followers of Gerard Groote’s Modern Devotion movement. After finishing school, he devoted his life to the movement, joining the Mount St. Agnes monastery. Thomas’ works evinced wide learning and deep biblical knowledge, and his work The Imitation of Christ is considered a classic in Christian literature.
