Thomas à Kempis (1380–1471) is the author of The Imitation of Christ, a classic in Christian literature. As he traveled with his brother to the Netherlands to attend school, he was introduced to the Brethren of the Common Life, followers of Gerard Groote’s Modern Devotion movement. After finishing school, Thomas joined the Mount St. Agnes monastery, where he spent the rest of his life in devotion and prayer. Thomas’ sermons, meditations, and prayers, compiled in The Works of Thomas à Kempis (7 vols), have influenced many Christian writers.
