Marie de St. Pol founded Pembroke College in the 14th century. What would have inspired her to dedicate her financial support and effort to the establishment of a college at the still-young Cambridge University? In this talk Sylvia Huot explores the religious and intellectual background Marie would have grown up in at the court of St. Pol in France and what the books commissioned by her mother tell us about the education she would have had there, as well as a bit about Marie’s own devotional interests.

This talk is part of the Pembroke Papers, Pembroke College series.
