This volume offers a wide-ranging collection of writings by and about religious women, presenting some of the most original and compelling literature of the middle ages. There are well-kwn pieces such as The Mirror of Simple Souls , as well as more obscure writings, including biographies, letters, visionary writings and poems. A male ecclesiastic writes about the resurrection of Christine the Astonishing at her own funeral and the revelations received by Bridget of Sweden, the first woman to found a religious order, are presented.
