Mystics, Visionaries, and Prophets: A Historical Anthology of Women's Spirtual Writings available in Paperback
Winner of Catholic Press Association Book-of-the-Year Award-Spirituality
Unique in its range and depth, this lavish anthology for the first time captures in a single volume the most notable spiritual writings of leading women from all periods of Christian history.
Because spirituality involves more than simply prayer and piety, Madigan has selected women whose quests for intimacy with God also involves some visionary experience or social witness. Ranging from Perpetua in the third century to Mother Teresa and Edwina Gately in this century, her volume includes writings from both European women and, in the modern period, Asian, American, and African American women. Apart from redressing the heavy gender imbalance of most histories of Christianity, this volume also provides strong historical introductions to and bibliographies of the twenty-six women whose writings are generously excerpted.
Women included in this volume are: Perpetua the Martyr
Pelagia the Actress
Brigit of Ireland
Balthild the Queen of Neustria
Dhuoda of Septimania
Hildegard of Bingen
Mechthild of Magdeburg
Gertrude the Great
Julian of Norwich
Catherine of Siena
Teresa of Avila
