  • Title: Cristina di Markyate e la "mistica femminile" [Twelfth-century intellectuals doubted women's spiritual capacities, but the same period saw many women mystics gain recognition for their experience of God. Christina of Markyate was a visionary with her earliest visions tied to the defense of her virginity. Some are concerned with Christina's mystical marriage to Christ. Her experiences transcended the limits of the intellect through love. Title note supplies by Feminae.]
