Richard Caister was a renowned priest and poet whose reputation inspired thousands of medieval pilgrims to visit his tomb at St Stephens Church, Norwich. As vicar of St Stephens, he wrote and preached in English, much like contemporaries Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe. He defended Margery when she was accused of heresy, open to the idea that God may inspire a woman. It was likely Margery who encouraged the first pilgrimages to his tomb, which became a shrine attracting pilgrims from all over England.
