  • Title: The Paradox of Unlikeness in Achard of St. Victor and Marguerite Porete [the author argues that comparing Marguerite's thought with that of Achard's points to a shift in theological currents; Achard believes humankind's unlikeness to God marks it for exile, while Marguerite sees the unlikeness to God as the soul's only hope for union with God].
