Title : Mysticism and Prophecy: The Labors of Margery Kempe [The author argues that Margery Kempe should be considered a prophet rather than a mystic.

Title : Dame Study and Women's Literacy ["Langland's poem negotiates the discourse of reading, recognizing the competition between the accepted female discursive mode and the call to social activism: 'Piers Plowman' embodies that competition in the figure of Study. As wife of Wit, Study dramatizes the competition for a reader's conscience, and traces in her disquisition the readerly paths to the heart. The one thing that recuperates the social experience of reading is its communal and sensual component: texts are read, heard, and felt. Study's emphasis on charity reveals a bold, feminized component of the discourse of social activism as antidote, if you will, to the constructed female reader of texts of affective piety." (Page 112)].

Title : Stabant matres dolorosae: Women as Readers and Writers of Passion Prayers, Meditations, and Visions [The author surveys late medieval writings on Christ's passion from Richard Rolle, the anonymous "Faits and the Passion of our Lord Jesu Christ," Eleanor Hull's translation, Margery Kempe, and Julian of Norwich. With the exception of the last author, the writers all aim at generating strong emotions in order to prompt contrition and reformed behavior. Only Julian emphasizes the joy and love of the Passion and encourages her reader to contemplate new ideas through positive theological metaphors. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Margery Kempe’s Tears and the Power Over Language [Margery’s tears play a significant role in her attempt to define herself and her role in society.

Author(s): Fite, Patricia P.
Title : To “Sytt and Syng of Luf Langyng”: The Feminine Dynamic of Richard Rolle’s Mysticism [Richard Rolle combines masculine and feminine dimensions of spirituality in his mystical writings. He uses feminized language as an alternative to the discourse of clerical authority, invoking the language of “luf langyng” (yearning for love) to express the mystical union of body and soul and the intense desire for union with the divine. Rolle’s concept of spiritual integration and affinity with the feminine anticipates the psychic theories of Carl Jung. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
