Title : Angela da Foligno [The visions of Angela of Foligno are mediated through both her words in the vernacular and the Latin words of Brother Arnold. Both were aware of the limits of words to describe her experiences. Angela's visions, like those of other Umbrian women, focus particularly on the Passion of Jesus, but she also saw herself holding the Christ Child. Her Marian visions, unlike those of Clare of Montefalco, emphasize Mary's poverty and humility].
