Description
Information
"In The Embodied Word, Nancy Bradley Warren expands on the topic of female spirituality, first explored in her book Women of God and Arms, to encompass broad issues of religion, gender, and historical periodization. Through her analyses of the variety ofways in which medieval spirituality was deliberately and actively carried forward to the early modern period, Warren underscores both continuities and revisions that challenge conventional distinctions between medieval and early modern culture. Drawing on the philosophical writings of Stanley Cavell and Karl Morrison, Warren illuminates a number of medieval and early modern texts, including St. Birgitta of Sweden's Revelations, St. Catherine of Siena's Dialogue, Julian of Norwich's Showings, devotional anthologies created by early modern English nuns in exile, the prophetic and autobiographical texts of Anna Trapnel, and the writings of Luisa de Carvajal y Mendoza."--BOOK JACKET.
