  • Title: Margherita Porete nello specchio degli studi recenti [Marguerite Porete must be seen not only in the context of women's experience but of a time when philosophy surrendered the quest for wisdom in favor of the pursuit of "scientific" knowledge; Porete was also different from most beguines in deemphasizing passion, piety, and teaching others outside a restricted circle; the Latin translation of the "Mirror of Simple Souls" underlines this connection to the learned world; Porete's mysticism often is described as passive, but Pereira discerns an emphasis on just action usually identified with Meister Eckhart].
