Title : Some Mediaeval Theologians and the Sophia Tradition [The author explores the diverse ways in which four theologians transformed the Biblical figure of Sophia, or Wisdom, into a powerful feminine image of God’s activity in creation and redemption. In the twelfth century, Bernard of Clairvaux frequently alluded to the figure of Wisdom from the Song of Songs in order to represent the maternal and nurturing qualities of the Divine; Hildegard of Bingen’s images of the feminine divine, in contrast, stressed the active forces of creation and redemption. In the fourteenth century, Henry Suso casts himself as a courtly lover who courts Wisdom as a knight serves a lady; Julian of Norwich adapts the maternal imagery of the Divine to embrace a much more inclusive and wider affective range.

Although the poem may have origins in pagan practices, the poem’s references to Bethlehem and the Nativity give it Christian relevance. Moreover, the poem repeatedly echoes monastic references to scripture and liturgy, giving the poem an oral quality that could serve a prayerful or devotional purpose instead of just being a pagan incantation with Christian terminology.
