Among the selections are the dramatic visionary writings of Hildegard of Bingen; Marguerite Porete's allegorical "The Mirror of Simple Souls," which was condemned as heretical; biographies written by male ecclesiastics of women such as Christine the Astonishing, whose extraordinary behavior include being resurrected at her own funeral; and excerpts from "The Book of Margery Kempe," in which Margery recounts her intense physical and spiritual experiences of religious devotion. This volume, edited by Elizabeth Spearing, who also prepared many of the translations, features a rich introduction to the lives of its subjects, as well as full explanatory notes. - back of the book

Revelations of divine love (short text and long text) by Julian( Recording )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Just because I am a woman, must I therefore believe that I must not tell you about the goodness of God, when I saw at the same time both his goodness, and his wish that it should be known?' Coming from a society where women were barred from serious writing and teaching, Julian, an anchorite in the great medieval city of Norwich, nevertheless used the English vernacular of the day to describe an extraordinary series of 'showings' which she received from God. In the famous parable of the Lord and the Servant, she reveals her penetrating insight into the mystery of salvation; and she moves towards the controversial belief that God's love will not allow any of humankind to be lost.-www.booksinprint.com
