A new book in Facets: brief, brilliant treatments of vital aspects of faith and life. Reviving a publishing initiative and innovative format from Fortress Press's early days, we proudly re-introduce Facets, a series that answers contemporary calls for bold thinking, clear ideas, and words that succinctly go to the heart of the religious and moral quest. Facets offers gems of religious writing from leaders who address today's more important or pressing questions-biblical, theological, and moral. Each book, offered at an economical price, presents a special angle that uniquely illumines an area or issue.

A leading feminist theologian glimpses into the souls of medieval women through the revelations of three noted mystical theologians: Hildegard of Bingen, Mechthild of Magdeburg, and Julian of Norwich.

About the Author:
Rosemary Radford Ruether is Georgia Harkness Professor of Theology at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and author of, among others, Women and Redemption (Fortress Press, 1998).
