  • Title: Trinitarian Love Mysticism: Ruusbroec, Hadewijch, and the Gendered Experience of the Divine [The author emphasizes the importance of this case because Ruusbroec acknowledged the influence of Hadewijch as a holy woman on his thinking. Boon argues that this indicates Ruusbroec's belief in woman's spiritual equality and that it was a woman who best formulated theological metaphysics for union with God.
