Short description Chronicle of the St Agnietenberg Monastery near Zwolle by Thomas à Kempis from its foundation to the year of its author's death (1386-1471). As this chronicle is only partly extant in manuscript (the only complete text - possibly an autograph - was lost in Leuven during WW I), this description is based on the editio princeps by H. Rosweyde (1621).
