Title : Ex levitate mulierum: Masculine Mysticism and Jan Van Ruusbroec's Perception of Religious Women [The author argues that too much emphasis has been placed on the impact of medieval women's mysticism. Warnar cites van Ruusbroec's last work, "On the Twelve Beguines," suggesting that Van Ruusbroec uses the women's desperate attempts to know God as a foil for his subsequent discussion of technical procedures and theological positions. Warnar concludes that men and women occupied separate worlds. Therefore masculine forms of mystical devotion, emphasizing a controlled, intellectual approach, had little to do with the emotional, experiential approach of women like Hadewijch.

Author(s): Boon, Jessica A.
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.
