Title : I am You: Medieval Love Mysticism as a Post-Modern Theology of Relation [The author argues that the mystical writings of Hadewijch, Mechthild von Magdeburg, and Angela of Foligno present a God who is passionately connected to humans.

Title : Can God Speak in the Vernacular? On Beatrice of Nazareth's Flemish Exposition of the Love for God [The author examines the "Seven manieren van heiliger Minnen," a vernacular text written by Beatrice, a prioress of the Cistercian convent of Nazareth in present day Belgium near Antwerp. Wiberg Pedersen also looks at Beatrice's "vita," written in Latin by an unknown monk. The monk also translated her "Seven manieren" text into Latin for inclusion with the "vita." Wiberg Pedersen argues that the Church was frequently uncomfortable with women who wrote theological texts, particularly in the vernacular. Nevertheless Beatrice and other "mulieres religiosae" found various orthodox outlets for their writings. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Humanity needed to put its trust in God, who was infinitely loving. Julian was distrustful of an undue preoccupation with sin and guilt. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Williams’ numerous allusions to the arms (or bodies) of beautiful women invoke famous near-divine feminine figures from medieval literature like Isolde and Beatrice. In both the medieval and modern texts, the woman’s physical beauty is the vehicle for the male lover’s transcendent awareness and understanding of God. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
