  • Title: Si cor sentit, hoc non est ipsa. Morte dello spirito e liberazione del cuore in Margherita Porete [Marguerite Porete believed the soul had to suffer successive deaths - to sin, to nature, and to the spirit - to achieve annhilation, being united with God. This last involved the loss of the individual will. Porete used Cistercian and Augustinian elements in her mystical writing, but she regarded the will as the obstacle to union with God. With it gone, true union was possible. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
